Wapen je tegen onzin

Pedro De Bruyckere vertaalde het boek “When can you trust the experts?” van Daniel Willingham naar het Nederlands. In dit boek toont bestsellerauteur Daniel T. Willingham hoe je feit van fictie kunt onderscheiden als je het zinnetje hoort ‘onderzoek zegt dat’. In het boek en in de lezing beschrijven Willingham en De Bruyckere wat goede wetenschap is, hoe je die kunt herkennen en waarom we vaak zo goedgelovig zijn voor slecht onderbouwde en foute claims.
