UC Berkeley philosopher John Searle is no stranger to challenging authority. After all, he was the first tenured professor to join Berkeley's Free Speech Movement. Today he is one of our leading philosophers and in his new book "Seeing Things As They Are," Searle takes on icons like Rene Descartes and Immanuel Kant, and outlines his own theory of perception. Searle joins us to talk about why Western philosophy is all wrong about how we experience reality.

Guests:

John Searle, Slusser professor of philosophy at UC Berkeley and author of books including "Seeing Things As They Are: A Theory of Perception"
