Barry Schwartz: Using our practical wisdom

-Barry Schwartz is a Psychologist-

Barry Schwartz studies the link between economics and psychology, offering startling insights into modern life. Lately, working with Ken Sharpe, he's studying wisdom.

Why you should listen to him:

In his 2004 book The Paradox of Choice , Barry Schwartz tackles one of the great mysteries of modern life: Why is it that societies of great abundance — where individuals are offered more freedom and choice (personal, professional, material) than ever before — are now witnessing a near-epidemic of depression? Conventional wisdom tells us that greater choice is for the greater good, but Schwartz argues the opposite: He makes a compelling case that the abundance of choice in today's western world is actually making us miserable.

Infinite choice is paralyzing, Schwartz argues, and exhausting to the human psyche. It leads us to set unreasonably high expectations, question our choices before we even make them and blame our failures entirely on ourselves. His relatable examples, from consumer products (jeans, TVs, salad dressings) to lifestyle choices (where to live, what job to take, who and when to marry), underscore this central point: Too much choice undermines happiness.

Schwartz's previous research has addressed morality, decision-making and the varied inter-relationships between science and society. Before Paradox he published The Costs of Living, which traces the impact of free-market thinking on the explosion of consumerism -- and the effect of the new capitalism on social and cultural institutions that once operated above the market, such as medicine, sports, and the law.

Both books level serious criticism of modern western society, illuminating the under-reported psychological plagues of our time. But they also offer concrete ideas on addressing the problems, from a personal and societal level.
"Whether choosing a health-care plan, choosing a college class or even buying a pair of jeans, Schwartz shows that a bewildering array of choices floods our exhausted brains, ultimately restricting instead of freeing us."

Bibledex - JAMES


Bibledex is a project by the University of Nottingham's Department of Theology and Religious Studies in conjunction with video journalist Brady Haran.

The videos are by no means comprehensive - rather they're a curious assortment of academic insights into what is probably the most famous collection of books in history.

Brady, who is not a scholar, produces similar video projects about The Periodic Table and Physics. Filming with various theological experts, he hopes the same "outsider's perspective" comes across in Bibledex.

The Maria Bamford Show Episode 10 -Dark-

Duluth-born stand up comic Maria Bamford returns to her native Minnesota for live shows at the Acme Comedy Club. From her interview, to sneak peek backstage moments, this funny lady is always on.

Originally hailing from Duluth, comedienne Maria Bamford is the friend in grade school you always wondered what happened to. Her career began at age 11 when she starred in the Chester Park Elementary production of “How the West Was REALLY Won!” She gained national recognition for her work on Comedy Central, the documentary film Comedians of Comedy, and nationally-aired 2009 Target commercials. Her trademarks are her babydoll voice, talent for voice impression, and (of course) natural good looks.

Now living in LA, she misses the eye contact she knew so well in Minnesota. That doesn’t stop her from showcasing her voice or comedic talents. She’s appeared on Jay Leno, Conan O’Brien, and Prairie Home Companion with Minnesota’s own Garrison Keillor. She’s also well known for her very original and hilarious web series, The Maria Bamford Show on SuperDeluxe.com. Her voice talents have been featured on PBS Kids’ Word Girl and the animated Nickelodeon series CatDog.
