Episode: Bending the Laws of Physics – Andreas Schilling
Pub date: 2019-06-25


“Nothing in life is certain,” writes MIT mechanical engineer Seth Lloyd, “except death, taxes and the second law of thermodynamics.” But is this necessarily so? In episode 52, we’re joined by Andreas Schilling with the University of Zurich, who discusses his development of an amazingly simple device that allows heat to flow from a cold object to a warm one without an external power supply; a process that initially appears to contradict this fundamental law of physics.

The Closing of the American Mind, by Allan Bloom

Podcast: Context with Brad Harris
Episode: The Closing of the American Mind, by Allan Bloom
Pub date: 2019-05-02

Allan Bloom’s The Closing of the American Mind, published in 1987, became one of the most influential books of the last 50 years by instigating a battle over the soul of the American University that’s been raging ever since.

The book sold millions of copies, becoming a powerful weapon in Bloom’s fight against what he identified as a morally and intellectually crippling form of relativism infecting America’s educational system. Allan Bloom sought to remind us that the goal of education is not to become open to all ideas, but to cultivate the search for the best ideas.
