Knowing how to think is more important than knowing what to think, especially for skeptics.

With the course The Science of Everyday Thinking you’ll explore everyday thinking: why people believe weird things, how we form and change our opinions, why our expectations skew our judgements, and how we can make better decisions. Topics range from subliminal messages and placebos, to cancer clusters, and miracles.

The Science of Everyday Thinking is a free online course through edX that’s open to anyone. You don’t need any previous education or experience, and you can participate as much or as little as you’d like.
