Who Defines Intelligence? An Interview with astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson

Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson

If you love science then you already know who Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson is.

If not, Tyson is the director of New York City’s Hayden Planetarium and a scientist who has mastered the art of explaining complex scientific theories to us common folk. As Carl Sagan once was, now Neil deGrasse Tyson is.

In this video he discusses how we as humans define intelligence and how, when talking about it in terms of animals, we are almost always wrong.

Other great question he raises, and is part of the Dog Files Mission, is why we don’t teach empathy in school.

Serious food for thought here. Love learning, hope you do too!
