Introducing Cited’s returning season: the Rationality Wars. The Rationality Wars tells stories about the political and intellectual battles to define rationality and irrationality. Behind every definition of rationality, somebody benefits, and somebody is harmed. We ask: what does it mean to be rational?; what does it mean to be irrational?; and most of all, who gets to decide?

Episode #3: The (ir)Rational Priests

A group of landholding elites waged psychological warfare on the El Salvadoran people, and oppressed them for generations. When a psychologist and Jesuit priest defended the rationality of the people against their oppressors, he paid the ultimate price. 

This is episode three of Cited’s returning season, the Rationality Wars. For a full list of credits, and for the rest of the episodes, visit the series page. You can also listen to the trailer for next episode, the (ir)Rational Public.
