Walking, talking duck

Workshop: If It Walks Like a Duck and Talks Like a Duck, It Is Likely a Duck

By Sheldon Poujade

Brussels: 9 October 2019

Critical thinking is relevant to how we make, and help others to make, informed decisions. It is also relevant to how we rationalise a conversational topic or the content of an interesting news article.

At times, we may instinctively feel that what a speaker has said, or an author has written, is the same as stating that,“2+2=5”. It "feels" illogical, but we may consider ourselves lacking the prerequisite knowledge of the topic to pursue a sensible line of questioning. We will refer to that inner instinct as “Common sense” for the purpose of this workshop. Common sense explains the title of the talk. We will touch on a variety of human made systems, for example marketing, finance and economics from a practical everyday perspective. Together, we will explore how giving a little space to common sense can guide our thinking effectively.
