It’s clear that the world needs more intellectual humility. But how do we develop this virtue? And why do so many people still end up so arrogant? Do our own biases hold us back from becoming as intellectually humble as we could be—and are there some biases that actually make us more likely to be humble? Which cognitive dispositions and personality traits give people an edge at being more intellectually humble - and are they stable from birth, learned habits, or something in between? And what can contemporary research on the emotions tell us about encouraging intellectual humility in ourselves and others?

Well-paced, interesting, informative course. Highly recommend.
I believe this course is very important. I am sorry because most scientists, albeit their education, do not even know what intellectual humility is.
So very interesting, and presented in a way that makes you curious and enthusiastic to dig deeper. Great teachers!!
It was a very wonderful journey thanks to all who have guided me to pass this path. Thank you.
