“There is such dissatisfaction, such humiliation, such resentment at the failure to fully penetrate French society”, explains Prof Dominique Moisi. “The reality is a land of great inequality.” In the slums of Marseilles, children play among the rubbish. Unemployment, poverty and systematic discrimination is driving young Muslims into the arms of extremists.

Invariably, the first thing they would all learn in my class (no matter their age or grade) was how to spot biased, inaccurate or outdated information.

We use information to build our opinions and values, sometimes we also use “instinct” which is no other thing that our brains putting all observations together behind our own consciousness and then bringing it all to the front (that’s why we experience it as a “insight”, a “gut feeling” or an “Aha! Moment”, they are all the result of our minds working in the background with all the unprocessed data we have been capturing from diverse sources)

With the wrong information, biased sources (and the wrong questions) we risk making a bad judgement and…

El peligro de ponerse la foto de perfil con el filtro de la bandera francesa

A raíz del atentado de este viernes en París, Facebook ha impulsado un filtro opcional para todos los usuarios de la red. En esta ocasión, el filtro pretende solidarizarse con las víctimas del atentado convirtiendo tu foto de perfil en una imagen que funde la original con los colores de la bandera de Francia. Por supuesto, minuto tras minuto los usuarios van utilizando la herramienta, llevados por el choque emocional que suponen los ataques en la capital francesa. Es evidente (aunque no creo que sea deseable) que en el mundo hay muertos de primera y muertos de segunda, incluso de tercera y cuarta. Es hasta cierto punto entendible que a un ciudadano europeo le aflija más un atentado en París que otro en Beirut. De hecho, si tenemos en cuenta la cobertura mediática que se hace de uno y de otro sería de extrañar que a un ciudadano…

Cognitive Bias as described by Bertrand RussellIn 1999, Justin Kruger and David Dunning identified a flaw in the human brain.

The Dunning-Kruger Effect is a cognitive bias whereby poor performers tend to overestimate their competence in any given field. Sounds quite safe and bland doesn’t it? But to put it another way some people who know the least about something are convinced that they are an expert in it. So those least qualified to give an opinion can be the most convinced of their opinion. And the opposite is true too; in studies high performers tended to underestimate their exam results (although to a much lesser extent that the poor performers overestimate theirs).

“Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge”, Charles Darwin

Why is this? Kruger and Dunning think that those who really suck at a subject are so bad that they lack the skills to realize just how bad they are. Also, because they…

Books I return to again and again; that I carry with me; that carry me.  Books that end their lives: beaten up, torn down, weather-worn, frayed, ripped and destroyed; pages flaking out, corners turned up, covers worn away and binding undone; each leaf a mash of near-indecipherable notes, the entire text underlined, underscored, understood, and thoroughly digested.

Marginalia abounds.

Sometime around AD65 a Roman nearing the end of his days sat down to write the first of what was to become a continuing series of letters to a younger man.  The writer’s name was Seneca – during his life: one of the richest men in Rome, an incredibly successful and critically acclaimed artist, and the power behind the throne during a window of time which has been described by some as ‘the finest period in Roman history’ – and…

21st century is an age of Extrospection.  Merriam-Webster dictionary meaning of Extrospection is “examination or observation of what is outside oneself”. And the simplest way of practising Extrospection is showing Empathy. Now, we all understand empathy as putting yourself in someone else’s shoes and looking at the situation, think their thoughts and feel their feelings. But above all, empathy is a choice and we all make this choice of whether or not to be empathetic every moment of everyday.

But are we really empathetic? Lets find out what we have become today and what an empathetic person is?

  1. “I am the best” – The 20th century was an age of introspection.  That age taught us that the best way to discover our lives and who we are, is to look within ourselves. And that pushes us to pursuing a lifestyle through self-interest. Most of the self-help books written…

Introduction of theory of everything

Theory of everything is just a conception and hopeful topics of physics to establish. But till now such kind of theory is not discovered. But only given a name that is theory of everything. theory of everything is a conceptual basis of physics that says once just a one unique principle will be established that will able to define all of the phenomenon of physics. The research on theory of everything is just an approach of unifying all of the physical law in a one single scheme. It is not clear that when such theory will be established, but scientists are hopeful in this matter that it is not quite impossible. It is quite possible to develop such kinds of theorem that will draw an end of physics theorem into a one unified theorem.

Possibility of establishing theory of everything

That is to explain philosophically…
