It’s clear that the world needs more intellectual humility. But how do we develop this virtue? And why do so many people still end up so arrogant? Do our own biases hold us back from becoming as intellectually humble as we could be—and are there some biases that actually make us more likely to be humble? Which cognitive dispositions and personality traits give people an edge at being more intellectually humble - and are they stable from birth, learned habits, or something in between? And what can contemporary research on the emotions tell us about encouraging intellectual humility in ourselves and others?

來自INTELLECTUAL HUMILITY: SCIENCE的熱門評論
I believe this course is very important. I am sorry because most scientists, albeit their education, do not even know what intellectual humility is.
All of the information presented was relevant, I find, and the optional information was enlightening without being too much.
So very interesting, and presented in a way that makes you curious and enthusiastic to dig deeper. Great teachers!!
I found this course to be very timely in this polarized world. I wish these ideas were taught in school.
Well-paced, interesting, informative course. Highly recommend.
Dr. Vasu Reddy's take on intellectual humility was intriguing.
For life-long-learners: I view this course as highly valuable.
