Faced with difficult questions people often tend to dismiss and marginalize dissent. Political and moral disagreements can be incredibly polarizing, and sometimes even dangerous. And whether it’s Christian fundamentalism, Islamic extremism, or militant atheism, religious dialogue remains tinted by arrogance, dogma, and ignorance. The world needs more people who are sensitive to reasons both for and against their beliefs, and are willing to consider the possibility that their political, religious and moral beliefs might be mistaken. The world needs more intellectual humility.

TOP REVIEWS FROM INTELLECTUAL HUMILITY: THEORY
Well-done! Very important course to have for anyone wanting to pursue the academic stream of their career!
This is a course that really rewards effort. It has caused me to engage in self reflection and to re-evaluate my own habits of thought.
Very interesting course, even better if you pair it with the others on Intellectual Humility
Topic and course are quite interesting. Lectures are clear and easy to follow, but don't have much spark, so not a five stars.
