The Psychology of Silicon Valley

October 18, 2021
Katy Cook


This week our guest is social psychologist, Katy Cook, who authored the 2019 book: The Psychology of Silicon Valley : Ethical Threats and Emotional Unintelligence in the Tech Industry.

And so as you might expect, that’s exactly what we talk about. That takes us on a tour exploring ideas like empathy, capitalism, and the concept of progress. In a lot of ways, the key focus of Katy’s work and this conversation deals with the lack of the humanities (and to that extent humanistic values) in tech companies, which ultimately impacts all of us due to the monopoly such companies have on our attention.

The ebook version of Katy’s book is FREE and can be found here on Google Books
