Názov: Cognitive bias: How to fail at evaluating truth claims
Termín: 23.3.2021, 16:30 hod., MS Teams
Our ancestral history has caused our neural circuitry to be hardwired to perform efficiently, not effectively. This results in a plethora of phenomena collectively known as cognitive bias - ways in which our brains unwittingly deceive us into perceiving, remembering and thinking in patterns that don't always yield the most precise results. This talk aims to be a brief introduction into the topic of cognitive bias - their definition, what kinds there are and how to classify them, why do we have them and what can be done about them. From all the various areas of our lives cognitive bias influence, I chose to tie them to the topic of epistemology - the study of theory of knowledge, where, as I personally believe, we can become better thinkers by simply educating ourselves regarding this phenomenon and respecting it when performing evaluations of truth claims.
