Intro to May 2017 Essays

I’ve started talking with my students about the May 2017 Essays.

I have written short commentaries as introductory ideas for the 4 most popular essays:
Essay #1
Essay#6 (added due to popular demand)

I used the slideshow, attached below as PDF, as a stimuli to start unpacking the titles. I hope it’s useful as a set of starters !

  1. Hi!
    DO you have anything on title #6? “Humans are pattern seeking animals and we are adept at finding patterns whether they exist or not” (adapted from Michael Shermer). Discuss knowledge questions raised by this idea in two areas of knowledge.”
    It would be extremely helpful, and I really like what you did for the three titles (1,3,5).

    Thanks in advance!
