Sixth in a podcast series on brains, thinking and the nature and limits of knowledge by cognitive scientist and philosopher David Cycleback, this 20-minute episode looks at the theory and movement called neurodiversity. Neurodiversity seeks to reclassify mental illnesses and conditions as natural variations in thinking. There are a wide variety of opinions and viewpoints, and even controversy, including within the medical community and amongst the mentally ill. This podcast examines both neurodiversity and the different and sometimes opposing viewpoints about it.
