Ep. 39 - Being Critically Open-Minded about Aliens -- with Steven Brown

More Human

24-07-2023 • 1 hr 16 mins

Perhaps the biggest surprise of the summer of 2023, at least from a news media perspective, was that significant numbers of serious, informed, sober-minded people became persuaded that the U.S. government really may have extraterrestrial spacecraft, or even the bodies of intelligent, nonhuman beings, in its possession. In this truly "out there" episode of More Human, Dean Jordan talks with philosopher and UFO-interested layperson Steve Brown about whether we should believe this is true, what it means to be "critically open-minded," and what the existence of intelligent nonhuman beings would mean for our understanding of our place in the universe. The presentation by Dr. Brown that inspired this podcast conversation ("Philosophy Professor Being Critically Open-Minded about Aliens") can be viewed online at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LELPrDnuMuE&t=1118s
