Steven Pinker made me reflect on the following:
Is rationality an acquired skill?
Are some of us more rational than others?
Does intelligence correlate with rationality?
If the world were to become hyper-rational, would it be a better world?
Is there a cost to rationality?
Does rationality augment creativity?
What can we do do make our society more rational?
Why do rational people do irrational things?
Is changing your mind a sign of strength or weakness?
Does rational pursuit of self-interest, sectarian solidarity, and uplifting mythology by individuals add up to crippling irrationality in a society?
