Jul 18, 2018 | | 9 comments

Dr.C.Viswanathan talks to students at Thavanoor Govt.college, about cognitive biases. We form our beliefs for a variety of subjective, emotional and psychological reasons in the context of environments created by family, friends, colleagues, culture and society at large. After forming our beliefs, we then defend, justify and rationalize them with a host of intellectual reasons, cogent arguments and rational explanations (Michael Shermer) In this presentation, ten common cognitive biases are briefly discussed.

  1. ഇദ്ദേഹം വളരെ വളരെ വലിയ യുക്തിവാദിയാണ്, ഒരുപക്ഷെ രവിചന്ദനേക്കാള്‍!

  2. From monkeys…first ധാരണാ പക്ഷപാതിത്വങ്ങള്‍
    No connection of mind or swapnum with external surroundings ..second ധാരണാ പക്ഷപാതിത്വങ്ങള്‍
    That means Parivarthanam of Monkey to man is not influenced by surroundings. It is an act of Gene [like mind or swapna }. It is fully independent. surroundings are not influencing by it. Accidentally gene of monkey changed to that of man. It is not influenced by surroundings or by evolution. It is like those dying in Thunder and lightning. It is accidental. not evolution. Gene is not influenced by surrounding. LIKE Function of mind or swapna. It is not influenced by external factors.
    REGARDING RAIN. Scientific explanation of rain is given in VEDAS. First read VEDA. Then pass comment. First realize the fact that PURANAS are story form of scientific facts in Vedas. Indra in Veda is a scientific phenomena. What happens to cloud etc is clearly written in it. But in Puranas it is written in story form. In it Indra is a character with eye and nose etc. It is for children. Not for you like learned person. Why you are going behind such characters of stories. Tomarrow you will go behind KUTTOSAN, DAKINI etc.
    I agrees that present day Viswasis are going behind such stories. You are a learned person. STORIES ARE STORIES. Try to understand the message behind it. It is for those who cannot have the ability to understand science.

  3. Dr.Viswanathan is doing a wonderful job by exposing the absurdities of our so called traditional therapic system.

  4. ബുദ്ധിയുടെ തോതനുസരിച്ചാണ്ചിന്ത ഉണ്ടാകുന്നത് (യുക്തിയല്ല )ബുദ്ധിയുടെ തോതാണെങ്കിൽ(അളവ് ) എല്ലാവരിലും ഒരുപോലെ അല്ലതാനും
