Misc. Resources

1. The Ethicist

A column in the New York Times in which people write into an expert ethicist about ethical dilemmas and the writer responds with what he believes is the right thing to do. A lot of interesting situations and interesting to follow the writer’s thought processes.

Hidden Brain

Great for human sciences.

“The Hidden Brain project helps curious people understand the world – and themselves. Using science and storytelling, Hidden Brain reveals the unconscious patterns that drive human behavior, the biases that shape our choices, and the triggers that direct the course of our relationships.”
