Went to see Kahneman speak at the LSE in 1998. Made a huge impression on me. My BPhil dissertation two years later and my PhD thesis five years later were an attempt to embrace his critique of human rationality and work out its consequences for the philosophy of mind. @philosophy

โ€œDubbing an apeโ€™s kiss โ€œmouth-to-mouth contactโ€ so as to avoid anthropomorphism deliberately obfuscates the meaning of the behavior. It would be like assigning Earthโ€™s gravity a different name than the moonโ€™s, just because we think Earth is special.โ€ RIP Frans de Waal @philosophy

โ€œWhat if we reclaimed as an integral part of human agency? We do not need to accept them as true beliefs about the world or the speaker. But we can stop assuming that they are where goes to die. Remaining curious about the speakerโ€™s perspective, where it comes from and what it means to them, is always the best policy.โ€ https://iai.tv/articles/delusions-shape-our-reality-auid-2772 @philosophy
