Episode 18: Book Review #1: Cynical Theories
Ryan and Josh review and discuss the book “Cynical Theories” by Helen Pluckrose and James Lindsey. The book discusses various fields of what is known as “Critical Theories,” “Social Justice Scholarship,” or simply “Theory). Including Fat Studies, Feminism, and, of course, Critical Race Theory among others.  Episode Book: https://cynicaltheories.com/ Other books mentioned: https://mises.org/library/austrian-perspective-history-economic-thought https://www.amazon.com/Marine-Biology-Short-Introduction-Introductions/dp/0199695059 https://www.amazon.com/Anthem-Ayn-Rand/dp/1502859939 Slavery and economics:  Mark Thornton has many good, peer reviewed, articles on the topic of slavery and economics that can be easily found with a quick google search in lieu of that here is a good talk he delivered on the subject: https://mises.org/power-market/mark-thornton-economics-slavery   Lost knowledge:  I couldn’t find any sources on the lost knowledge in the field of optometry. I know it’s mentioned in “An Austrian Perspective on the History of Economic Thought” but it’s a dense book and I can’t find it. Until I can find a source we can say statements about this are up in the air on whether they are factual.  Links:   iTunes: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/tarred-and-feathered/id1559183879 Spotify:  https://open.spotify.com/show/6KJ9ZQ7rj9ErbmRyBmOTFU?si=z3wAwRFhSa29HIlhFDs9sQ Stitcher: Tarred and Feathered on Stitcher Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/TarredAndFeather Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TAFCast/ Email: Tarredfeathered907@gmail.com  And Remember to leave us a review!
