Lecture no. 13 from the course: Your Deceptive Mind: A Scientific Guide to Critical Thinking Skills
Taught by Professor Steven Novella | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Professional Development Courses
Turn now to an in-depth examination of science, which serves as the foundation for critical thinking and can compensate for the tendency of human thinking to go awry. Specifically, you’ll focus on and make sense of the philosophical interpretations of science (including Occam’s razor), as well as probe some of the limits of scientific reasoning.
