Dec 11, 2018

To be critical is to understand all events, experiences and phenomenon by examining their relationship with the social world.  One who is critical accepts the social world as a series of interconnecting systems ...usually enacted to maintain current distributions of power. 

In this episode, the hosts considers how two seemingly similar people can have different comfort levels with critical theory.  In short, she attempts to answer the question, what actually makes one critical?  In talking about marginalized bodies, childhood trauma, dominant wiring for intuition, and academic training for higher order processing and abstract thinking, she explores four possibilities for a critical orientation.
