My Poll Explained by Robin Hanson – Robin recently ran a poll about the credibility of the Kavanaugh abuser. Robin explains his reasons for running the poll.

The Master And His Emissary by Robin Hanson – Robin reviews a book on Left/Right brain: “What he mainly does in his book is to organize these opinions around a core distinction: the left vs right split in our brains. In sum: while we need both left and right brain style thinking, civilization today has gone way too far in emphasizing left styles, and that’s the main thing that’s wrong with the world today. McGilchrist maps this core left-right brain distinction onto many dozens of other distinctions, and in each case he says we need more of the right version and less of the left. He doesn’t really argue much for why right versions are better (on the margin); he mostly sees that as obvious. So what his book mainly does is help people who agree with his values organize their thinking around a single key idea: right brains are better than left.”
