Navigating Collective Illusions Online

June 20, 2022
Todd Rose


This week our guest is Todd Rose, who was previously a professor at Harvard University where he led the Laboratory for the Science of Individuality and was the faculty director of the Mind, Brain, and Education program. Since then, Todd  co-founded the think-tank Populace to help improve society and the lives of individuals, and wrote a book we’ll be talking about a lot in this episode: “Collective Illusions: Conformity, Complicity, and the Science of Why We Make Bad Decisions.” We explore what these collective illusions are, how they relate to technology, and the opportunities and consequences of navigating these illusions.

Todd recommend reading this piece by Václav Havel entitled The Power of the Powerless, and you can find more about Todd and his work at toddrose.com.
