Here it is, our regular Friday diet of suggested readings for the weekend:
Sometimes I believe in string theory. Then I wake up.
Tom Brady is drowning in his own pseudoscience. But he’s selling it to you at very steep prices.
The problem with naturopathic pseudoscience.
Publicly we say me too, but privately we have misgivings, say a number of feminists.
Fire and Fury is the perfectly postmodern book for a postmodern Presidency.
Computers are making generalists of us all. And that’s not necessarily a good thing.
Turns out, there is more than some reasonable doubt about the idea of a backfire effect and other recent “discoveries” of social psychology. Not all is lost for reason and evidence.
Please notice that the duration of the comments window is three days (including publication day), and that comments are moderated for relevance (to the post one is allegedly commenting on), redundancy (not good), and tone (constructive is what we aim for). This applies to both the suggested readings and the regular posts. Also, keep ‘em short, this is a comments section, not your own blog. Thanks!
