Digital Addiction and Our Mental Health Crisis, Part 1


Digital Madness: How SOCIAL MEDIA is Driving Our MENTAL HEALTH CRISIS—and How to Restore Our Sanity is a new book by today’s guest, Dr. Nicholas Karderas. He details how social media is eroding our attention spans, and fostering binary thinking—akin to a mass epidemic of borderline personality disorder. Dr. Kardaras points out how highly immersive social media are an evolutionary mismatch for our hunter-gatherer brains. He proposes a dose of classic philosophy and ethics to gird ourselves against digital media’s pernicious influences, and describe effective treatment programs for digital addicts. Dr. Karderas declares against censorship but calls for reining in the power and reach of social media behemoths. Click HERE for part 2.
