Weapons of Mass Disambiguation

September 20th, 2015

In this episode I discuss the philosophical concept of disambiguation and the need to be able to disambiguate important concepts when engaging with a different worldview or belief than our own.

We will see in this episode of the Freed Thinker Podcast!
