Fourteen days in the project #CriticalThinking in 365 concepts

We are in week two of the little project #CriticalThinking in 365 concepts.

Last week, March 4-11, 2019, we started off with why from learning German and from Nebraska in 1923 (Meyer v Nebraska, 262 U.S. 390) comes a parent's right to teach their child what they please, and we looked at seven concepts, namely vicarious, compliance, self-trust, drive, intuition, frame of reference, and straw man.

This last week we added a few more words, of course. Let's introduce them again starting with something else, also from 1923. The streamlined power vehicle. Otherwise contemporaneously called aerodynamic vehicle. We never call it that anymore because we expect all personal vehicles to be aerodynamic today.

As it turns out the aerodynamic vehicle was invented by Aurel Persu, a Romanian engineer working in Germany.

Aurel Persu invented a few other things as well, but that is for another time. With curiosity though, one can explore much more on their own. 

For now, let's recapitulate the seven concepts from this past week.

8. Curiosity

9. Humility

10. Open minded

11. Perseverance

12. Comfort zone

13. Fallacy of composition

14. Induction

As always, we welcome suggestions of order of introducing the next concepts as well as links to resources that may serve in making the concepts enjoyable. Please contribute directly here, on LinkedIn, on twitter, or email Dr. Pete Rescue directly. 

Best of enjoyment,
Adrian S. Petrescu
