Thinking About Thinking, Part 1
Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about thinking. One of the most interesting concepts I’ve encounted is something called “Naive Realism.” Naive realism explains why you know that you are right and other people are wrong. Someone who is a victim of naive realism believes that he sees things objectively, and anyone who disagrees just needs to see things from a proper perspective. As I think about thinking, naive realism might be at the very core of all thinking problems.
