Thank you for being here! I hadn't heard of your work before but I will check out your books.

I read somewhere that CBT owes a lot of its history to Stoicism. Could you point out some key differences?

Do you think combining classical stoic approaches with techniques like mindfulness is useful? What about third-wave cognitive therapies?

Thank you for being here! 🙏🏻

My historical research focuses on the interplay between science, politics, and culture, especially as these have unfolded over the past century.

It feels like politics and culture may be starting to strangle science, and certainly that they are failing to fully support science and take full advantage of what science offers

Given your historical perspective, does that ring true? If so, do you see a way forward--maybe a similar way that people were able to escape something like our current conditions in the past?
