Themes

My main topics of interest are philosophy, history, science, critical thinking, epistemology, education and cognitive science. I am concerned with the proliferation of belief in the supernatural and bad thinking. I write about the pernicious consequences of superstition, fuzzy thinking and lack of education, as well as the need to greatly enhance our cognitive abilities through systematic training in critical thinking, logic and memory. I believe that to make the world a better place we must put a lot more emphasis on education (including morals and ethics) and increase our reliance on science as the best epistemological tool at our disposal.
