Jacques Rousseau — UCT | Lecturer

If there was a gym for your brain, would you pay a subscription?

In this episode I talk to Jacques Rousseau, lecturer at the University of Cape Town, author, and secular activist about critical thinking and ethics.

We explore the benefits of applying rational thought to effective leadership, the pros and cons of social media (and specifically Twitter), the lost art of conversation and debate, and many more topics.

Key quote:

"No matter how big and powerful you might be, there's somebody out there that's bigger and more powerful, and unless you have tried to create a world in which we look out for each other, you're going to get taken down one day as well... " -- Jacques Rousseau Jacques Rousseau's blog · Square Brackets, a podcast hosted by Jacques Rousseau and Greg Andrews · The EDX Science of Everyday Thinking course that Jacques recommended for executives who want to advance their critical thinking skills
