Thinking with Models

Lecture no. 23 from the course: The Philosopher's Toolkit: How to Be the Most Rational Person in Any Room

Thinking with Models

Taught by Professor Patrick Grim | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

Synthesize the earlier lectures on visualization, simplification, and thought experiments and check out the benefits of thinking with models. The three-stage model—input, mechanism, and output—is a great way to put your toolkit strategies to work, whether you want to predict tomorrow’s weather, explain why the moon exists, or understand segregated neighborhoods.
