Episode 4: Our Misunderstanding of Free Will - We Have Much Less, and More, Control Than We Think
/

Join former mayor, municipal manager, professor, and consultant Alex Torpey in the fourth episode of Rethinking.

In this episode, we will explore the concepts of self, free will, and consciousness to help better understand the common denominator of nearly every issue we face today – a fundamental misunderstanding of how our minds work and what leads us to think, believe, and take actions in the way we do. Explore how some millennia old ideas have warped how we govern, and what modern science has started to show us about our own minds and why this is so important to rethinking how we govern.

This is part one of two. After we identify the false assumptions about how we form ideas, have beliefs, and take actions, in the next episode, we will look at how those false assumptions lead to, and currently operate, today’s governance systems and world.
