Overcoming Bias

by rwatuny
Over the last several decades, new research has changed science's picture of how we succeed or fail to seek the truth.

We want to avoid, or at least minimize, the startling systematic mistakes that science is discovering. If we know the common patterns of error or self-deception, maybe we can work around them ourselves, or build social structures for smarter groups. We know we aren't perfect, and can't be perfect, but trying is better than not trying.
