Default Steven Novella, Critical Thinking course

For only $60, you can download a 24-lecture video series by Steven Novella on critical thinking, here.
I saw it announced, here, just now.

I like how the lectures are organized (menu on right). We've dealt with most if not all of these topics already, as they pertain to manual therapy, but this looks like a very nice well-organized set indeed, and presents us with what might be a way to organize and systematize our threads better. Some day. Maybe.

I enjoyed his medical myths series!

The course are generally well laid out and the supplemental printed material make a great reference resource instead of having to find which track you heard it on. (a pet peeve of mine with audiobooks)

Thanks for linking this Diane. I can never hear enough critical thinking resources.

I hear you on that ANdy,

I have so many books, audiobooks, videos etc in cue. Then Barrett or Diane mention something and it jumps cue.

Really if I never added another thing I would still have a good 2 - 3 years of material with just what I have already.

And never mind the TED lectures, YouTube videos, and Soma resources.

Byron sometimes I feel like I am bound to some Sisyphean task - but who would be my Hades amongst this underworld of the dead?

regard

ANdy the mythical ( or is that mystical?)

note to self - go to bed tonight dammit!
