2/23/07: A History of Doubt

Salt Lake City, UT – Surveying the history of "doubt" is for author and historian Jennifer Michael Hecht "like seeing a map upside down." It's a bit disorienting because we tend to study our world through its moments of certainty. Doubt, though, is what drives us forward. As Hecht argues "every time you ask a question, you've got to come up with an answer." Jennifer Michael Hecht was in Utah last year, and she joined Doug to explain how doubt is just as vibrant as belief in its prescriptions for a good life. (Rebroadcast)
