Political Prejudice



How politically rational are you? What are your views on global warming, nanotechnology or the value of IQ tests and are they based on scientific evidence or cognitive bias?

Michael Blastland talks to top international thinkers including Dan Kahan and Jonathan Haidt about our ability not to let the facts get in the way of deeply held belief.
