I found this course to be very timely in this polarized world. I wish these ideas were taught in school.

Thank you for challenging me to become a person of intellectual humility.

From the lesson
What makes us arrogant? Biases, heuristics and cognitive psychology
Professor Frank Keil discusses a number of biases which we all have, and which can make us more arrogant and dogmatic by leading us to think that we know more than we actually do. Can you find examples of those biases in the news, and perhaps even in yourself?
