Included: School History - The Four Phases of Scientific Management From SGT Report: Published on Apr 23, 2017 It's no secret to folks who follow the work of John Taylor Gatto that public schools in the United States amount to little more than state funded indoctrination camps at this point.

[VIDEO] Thinking, Fast and Slow (A Rationalist Review)

Steve Patterson and Brett Veinotte discuss Daniel Kahneman's book, "Thinking, Fast and Slow." We discuss both the helpful insights and the problems in the book along the lines of philosophy, economics, current events and statistical analysis.

[VIDEO] #415: The Principles of Learning Anything – Part 5 – Embrace Your Incompetence + Q&A

February's Theme: A New Perspective On Self-Education For this entire month I will be joined by Steve Patterson, a home-educated and self-taught Rationalist philosopher, to explore five key principles of learning that are translatable to just about any pursuit. Principle #5: Embrace Your Incompetence Ego is perhaps the biggest obstacle in the way of learning. People get wrapped up in the appearance of competence or the appearance of knowledge, and they rarely allow themselves to admit being wrong. You might think of ego as a huge methodological error. In reality, failure is your best friend. Failure is immediate feedback that “something is wrong.” And it’s a necessary part of the process for everyone. You literally cannot get from beginner to ...

Part 1 Part 2 February's Theme: A New Perspective On Self-Education For this entire month I will be joined by Steve Patterson, a home-educated and self-taught Rationalist philosopher, to explore five key principles of learning that are translatable to just about any pursuit. Principle #4: Doubt Everybody (Skepticism) Though it sounds rude, I suggest assuming that most people don’t know what they are talking about and do not understand the correct basics. That includes most “experts”, or instructors, in everything from the world of ideas, back to the martial arts, or even basic practical skills.

February's Theme: A New Perspective On Self-Education For this entire month I will be joined by Steve Patterson, a home-educated and self-taught Rationalist philosopher, to explore five key principles of learning that are translatable to just about any pursuit.

February's Theme: A New Perspective On Self-Education For this entire month I will be joined by Steve Patterson, a home-educated and self-taught Rationalist philosopher, to explore five key principles of learning that are translatable to just about any pursuit. Principle #1: Technique The method in which you accomplish what you’re trying to do. It’s the concrete “how”. - People have heroes, heroes become superhuman, godly – they look up to but never into people - high-level performers simply have better technique than their competition. They are closer to “the right way of doing X” than other people. - Almost everybody does everything incorrectly? - Practice makes perfect? - Steve's self-education in economics? - Credentialing Check out more at: steve-patterson.com or ...
