Buy Gad Saad's New Book The Parasitic Mind here:

Gad Saad is a world-renowned Canadian-Lebanese evolutionary psychologist. Evolutionary psychology is the study of the human mind from the perspective of evolution. How did our ancient evolutionary patterns and behaviors impact our modern-day minds? Why do we think about love, sex, family & life in the way that we do?

Gad has been a professor of marketing at Concordia University since 1994. He also hosts a YouTube show called ‘The Saad Truth’ and is a writer for a blog called ‘Psychology Today’.

In today’s episode, Gad talks about his new book ‘The Parasitic Mind’, the evolution of human beings throughout the years, surprising facts he learned about relationships while studying psychology, and much more.

I originally came across Gad on the Joe Rogan Experience. Decided that we just HAD to have him featured on The Ranveer Show.

Today’s conversation is deep, intellectual, mind-bending but also a huge source of learning.

Conversations with Tom | Dr. Gad Saad on How Parasitic Ideas are Entering and Ruining Your Mind

Read more

A single idea can be a parasite to the mind. It can enter our thoughts without us even knowing, bury itself deep within our psyche, and transform our entire reality and outlook on the world. Do you have the mental strength, prowess, and awareness needed to identify when this may be happening? On this episode of Conversations with Tom, professor and author of ‘The Parasitic Mind,’ Dr. Gad Saad, joins Tom Bilyeu to discuss such important matters and more as they explore how ideas can act as parasites to the mind and what you should be mindful of in this age of identity politics. They discuss the dangers of post-modernism, the changing culture in the western world, the void of common sense, nature versus nurture, why people latch onto ideas that separate them from true reality, how America is closer to a civil war than one might think, and how identity politics is a slippery slope that leads to dangerous consequences.
