Today I'm speaking with Jennifer Ratner-Rosenhagen, a historian from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. It would be hard to find a scholar better equipped to enhance our historical perspective on how we decide what's true.

Jennifer and I challenge each other's thinking on whether ideas about natural rights were discovered or created, whether or not the distinction between objective truth and pragmatic truth really matters, how we reconcile timeless values with scientific disruption, and more.
