Sam Harris has dealt with countless quacks in his career, but Deepak Chopra might have been the biggest one of all. Even with Michael Shermer there to help, Deepak was difficult to pin down, much less debate. Harris applied his signature, efficient and cool-headed approach to the discussion. Outside of this event, these debate practices can be observed in footage from the Sam Harris, Jordan Peterson talks in Vancouver and Dublin, on the Waking Up podcast, on the Joe Rogan Experience, and throughout his speaking career.
Sam knows how pseudoscience preaching quacks manipulate their audiences, evade criticism, and recruit followers. So, he rarely misses a beat in taking them down, whether the topic is quantum healing, alternative medicine, religion, or mysticism.
