Who are we? Why do we worry about the past and future? What is the meaning of trying and striving? Dr. Jeremy Sherman was the perfect person to ask! He has a Ph.D. in evolutionary epistemology, which seeks to explain how organisms that came from chemistry ended up learning how to make efforts to strive and survive. In 2017, he wrote Neither Ghost Nor Machine: The Emergence and Nature of Selves which dives deep into those ideas. He uses all kinds of media platforms- books, podcasts, articles, you name it! We were so honored to host him and pick his brain about so many interesting topics!
