Argumentaatiota oppimaan. Lainarahalla tai ilman. 
 ·  Translate
Suomalaisten argumentointitaidoista on viimeaikaisen julkisen puskista huutel… keskustelun perusteella oltu huolestuneita. Haluan kantaa korteni kekoon, jotta saisimme kansallista tasoamme nostettua tälläkin saralla. Tässä siis tiivistetty katsaus tyypillisiin virheargumentteihin, jotta niiden ...

The way machines can learn ethics is through stories. Narratives are powerful! 
Scientists have been running tests where artificial intelligences cultivate appropriate social behaviour by responding to simple narratives

It's safe to say that economic inequality bothers us. But why? Harvard philosopher T. M. Scanlon offers four reasons we should tackle — and fix — the problem.

Is it meaningful to say some things can't be expressed or are ineffable? This nice article is about Buddhist thought and modern logics and catch up a lot of interesting things about logic, reality and the nature of claiming something. 
Buddhist philosophy is full of contradictions. Now modern logic is learning why that might be a good thing

If something can be expressed or defined it comes from the mind/thought. Buddhism/Hinduism is a way to decondition the mind and reveal the illusion of the ego.

When the ineffable is all that is left, its like an "aha moment" that instantly disappear when you try to describe or hold on to it.

In many ways logic only disconnect you further from the ultimate.

Neti neti is an interesting approach. Nothing is what you think it is.

It is really interesting to see the rapid development in scientific knowledge about memory and epigenetics. 
Neuroscientist Priya Rajasethupathy has discovered a tiny molecule that may turn off part of the genome to help the brain store long-term memories.

I want to understand the mechanisms. But yes, the intuition about being able to react to the cahanges in the environment would be an advantage in evolution.

Charity is certainly not enough to solve the problems of poverty, inequality and climate change. But when it is difficult for an individual to act globally and change the structures that are causing the imbalance in resources, it is still possible to participate in helping somebody, somewhere. It is good to know if a special charity is also effective and well planned. This is why I appreciate this list by the ethicist Peter Singer, the utilitarian thinker who tries to live accordingly. 
We’re excited to announce our 2016 list of best charities working against global poverty. Our 17 recommended charities do innovative and cost-effective work to bring food, vital nutrients, medical services, and economic opportunities to some of the 7...

Science deniers are not all religious nuts: most of them just wish science would stop changing its mind about everything

These four misconceptions about autism are damaging and in desperate need of debunking, says Steve Silberman.

Flipping a classroom is a big and important process. A Finnish teacher Pekka Peura has been developing a model based on mastery learning. 

What I greatly admire is the emphasis on humanity and the value of our different personalities in creating motivation. The motivation model here uses the work of the psychologists Deci & Ryan as a fundamental basis for all classroom activity.

Story
Tagline
Uskonnon, psykologian ja filosofian opettaja. I am a teacher of psychology, philosophy and knowledge about religions. I enjoy my work. I am also a learner and quite a curious person.
Introduction
I'm a Finnish teacher of religion, psychology and philosophy. I'm really interested in neurology, philosophy of mind and in music. I sing (more than my dear ones would love me to do) and have done so publicly, too. I like technology but I am also a bit ashamed of my enthusiasm. I love  gardens and nature. I use a helmet when driving my bicycle. I take poor photos but I like to see the excellency in other people's photos. My posts are in Finnish or in (broken) English (the spelling errors are especially terrible when I get carried away and try to comment something via my celluphone). My Swedish is ok. I can read some other languages like Russian as well. This Google+ has been a good experience so far. I use this environment to get ideas and sometimes to get a good laugh. I've tried Diaspora but haven't found enough time to explore it. My time is limited and I don't bomb people with unlimited amounts of posts.

You might find me interested in gender and equal sexual rights issues, human rights, neurology and science, light geekology, art, discussion about ateism/theism, religions of the world, Carl Sagan -type of thinking, humour, painting with light, literature, facts, imagination, open software, android, weird thinking and mental health. 

I'm curious and open-minded (believe or not) but the only Bacons I like are Roger and Francis.

I have a Finnish blog: http://oppimista.tumblr.com
