Should we trust our senses?
Can we trust our senses to tell us the truth? Challenging leading scientific theories that claim that our senses report back objective reality, cognitive scientist Donald Hoffman argues that while we should take our perceptions seriously, we shouldn’t take them literally. But how can our senses be useful if they are not communicating the truth? Hoffman grapples with this question and more, arguing that what we see is not objective reality, and what are the real-world implications for this discovery? Just like a file icon on a desktop screen is a useful symbol rather than a genuine representation of what a computer file looks like, the things we see every day are merely icons, allowing us to navigate the world safely and with ease.
