#37 - [The Chapman Series, Pt. 2] Nebulosity of Knowing
Show Notes

This is part 2 of a series where Christofer investigates the ideas of David Chapman with his friend Jake Orthwein. The material covered is mainly from Chapman's two books: 'Meaningness' (meaningness.com) and 'In the Cells of the Eggplant' (metarationality.com).

In the second episode they focus on why the search for a universal theory of epistemology is problematic. They talk about mathematical and semantic information, the difference between nebulosity and fallibilism, and Chapman's division of reasonableness, rationality and meta-rationality. 

Jake Orthwein is a writer and filmmaker based in Santa Monica, CA. He studied film and cognitive science at the University of Southern California and currently works as Director of Media for the Psychology of Technology Institute, an academic non-profit focused on improving research on the human-technology relationship. He is also a long term meditator.
