The Science of Everyday Thinking (Think101x)

Course highlights

Learn how to think better, argue better, and choose better. 

You don’t need any previous education or experience, and you can participate as much or as little as you’d like.

We explore everyday thinking: why people believe weird things, how we form and change our opinions, why our expectations skew our judgements, and how we can make better decisions. Topics range from subliminal messages and placebos to cancer clusters and miracles.

We hope you’ll learn to be more curious. Knowing how to think is more important than knowing what to think
