Andy Norman is a researcher focused on studying how ideologies short-circuit minds and corrupt moral understanding.

 

His studies have led him to develop a toolkit of methods for improving reasoning and share them in his book, Mental Immunity.

 

His hope is that a collection of academic research can be lassoed together to serve as the foundation of a new scientific field, Cognitive Immunology. Cognitive immunology would explore the ability of researchers to develop a mind vaccine to inoculate individuals against dangerous ideas.

 

In this conversation, Andy and Aaron discuss the dangers of loneliness, the importance of dialogue, and the future of viral ideas.
