Pessimism of the Intellect

Ahmad Fuad Rahmat, Projek Dialog | Sharaad Kuttan, BFM 89.9

Pessimism of the Intellect

As Malaysians face uncertain times, Fuad and Sharaad reflect on the valances and dimensions of optimism and pessimism. How can we best think of hope amidst trying times? Is optimism always bounded to pessimism? And could pessimism actually turn out to be a good thing, after all? We really hope you will join us for our usual weekly critical unpacking.
