Special guest Robert Wright joins the podcast to discuss his latest book “Why Buddhism is True.” What is the Buddhist conception of not-self?
When we become aware that the boundaries between us and the world are fluid, what is the “we” that arrives at this insight? Can daily meditation make you less of a dick? How does evolutionary psychology bear on these questions? Plus, Dave horrifies Tamler with his new hipster habit.
