Skeptic's Guide to the Universe   

The class covers core concepts that every skeptic should know: Mechanisms of deception, memory fallibility, fallibility of perception, metacognition issues, science versus pseudoscience, and skepticism and the media. We will suggest tools useful for helping us recognize our own biases and cognitive barriers to rational assessment.
