Medium description

How quick should we be to accept something that someone else tells us is true, and what should we be looking out for when assessing a person's trustworthiness? How and when should we adjust our beliefs, and how does the appropriate response vary depending on the evidence?

In this course, we’ll examine some of the major questions about applied issues surrounding intellectual humility: 

  • should you believe what people say?
  • how should we handle disagreement?
  • what is the role of evidence in resolving religious disagreements?

Leading specialists bring you readings and practical assignments to help address issues related to humility in your daily life.
