You Are Not in Control of Your Own Thinking

Daniel Kahneman
According to a recently published essay (Oct. 20, 211) in the New York Times by columnist David Brooks, the research Nobel-prize winner Daniel Kahneman is now publishing will be remembered hundreds of years from now.  Among other things, Kahneman challenges the notion that people "are mostly rational agents" who "have control over the most important parts of their own thinking."   Kahneman's research may change the way you view literature, writing, morality, and the way we learn about  (and teach) all of these things.
