By Doug Fabrizio

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 joined Doug to explain how doubt is just as vibrant as belief in its prescriptions for a good life. (Rebroadcast)
