Stoicism is a philosophy that is ultimately geared towards attaining knowledge. Because of that it is crucial to know what kind of media environment we live in and how to navigate it.
In this episode, Caleb speaks with philosophy professor Justin McBrayer. They discuss his book Beyond Fake News: Finding the Truth in a World of Misinformation.
Justin provides an important framework for how to think about the problem and strategies for individuals who want to see the world as it is.
