Reading Time: < 1 minute


So a recent Skepticule podcast has become available. In episode 42 I give a segment on doxastic voluntarism, something Andy Schueler has written on here. This is the idea that we cannot just ‘choose’ to believe something, but that there is an automatic, non-conscious threshold which the evidence bridges. Check it out. Listen to the whole podcast, or check my part from 51.35 onwards.

Thanks again to the Pauls for allowing me on the podcast.
