Readings for M S17


As we rejigger the schedule, we need to relate readings.  Pay no attention to what is on the syllabus at this moment.  For class on Saturday, September 15, we will address you initial data gathering work and discuss Plato's "allegory of the cave.'  For Monday, September 17, please link through and process the following article on cognitive biases.  They are short and related; plus, they build on our discussion on consciousness begun last year in the Equity course.

As always, questions and comments are welcome.

Barry Rithoz presents a list of the "ten most common cognitive errors"

Jonah Lehrer
Sean Carrol, blogging at Discover, "Remembering the past is like imagining the future"

from the BBC, on why we tune out

from ScienceDaily
on 'motivated reasoning'
from The Guardian (London), "The story of the self; how reliable are our memories?"
