My thinking has changed in recent years to be more skeptical about my own personal views and to place more effort in trying to understand my smartest adversaries. Hume, Hayek, Nietzsche and Edward Bernays have probably influenced me the most in the past four years, but someone else who reads these authors would probably walk away with different theories than my own.
Thanks for this. I'm 12 minutes into the first Haidt diavlog and stopped long enough to download "The Happiness Hypothesis" to my Kindle account. Hope to compare more opinions with you in some future BhTV thread after I catch up a bit.
Need to read some more Hume too - as Bad Hat Harry has suggested.
