Augustine of Hippo wrote, “Fallor ergo sum.” (“I err, there for I am.”) Being wrong isn’t necessarily a moral failing; it’s deeply baked into who we are.
This course will let us explore the ways in which we have been, are, and will be wrong about science, politics, economics, religion, and ourselves.
We’ll look at stories of wrongness, some comical, some tragic, some that maybe, just maybe will convince us that we’ve been wrong. It’s there, in that chaotic chasm, that learning can become fun
