The ‘Principles of Thinking’ Challenge 2022

By January 15, 2022 No Comments

Long, long ago, about this time last year, the Iota students have challenged their instructor, prof. Edward Nęcka, to formulate a set of principles that he would recommend as the most important for improving thinking. Thus was born the sanctified tradition of the SoT ‘Principles of Thinking’ challenge, extended to you again this year.

We are inviting SoT Students, Fellows and Instructors to formulate their own lists of guiding principles and recommendations for better thinking, in whatever sense of the word you choose to focus on. Send your lists to maciej.swiezy@vub.be or post to relevant discussion groups. Come back to this webpage to see your own and other entries, or click here for contributions from the previous year. .

Challenge extended!

CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!
