Jonathan Dori On What We Think We Know
Starting with four basic questions (that you may be surprised to find you can't answer), Jonathan Drori looks at the gaps in our knowledge -- and specifically, what we don't know about science that we might think we do. In this lecture, he explains the correct answers to his basic questions and why so many people don't know the answers. Drori explores our current methods of teaching science and why we
