How to be Rational

A video series on how to be rational. I follow chapters 3 through 9 in Steven Pinker’s book Rationality: What It Is, Why It Seems Scarce, Why It Matters (see my review of the book here). Topics to be covered are:

  1. Logic
  2. Probability
  3. Bayesian Reasoning
  4. Rational Choice and Expected Utility
  5. Signal Detection and Statistical Decision Theory
  6. Game Theory
  7. Correlation and Causation
