A Conversation with Dr. Daniel Kahneman

When I was a kid, I was obsessed with the idea of getting good grades.

When I got to college, I realized that, while it was possible to do, I could never do it with the same success I’d imagined.

I wanted to be the smartest person in the class, and I was terrified to admit it.

I felt like my intelligence was going to be questioned if I didn’t have the same academic rigor as everyone else.

But I also felt like I had an obligation to the class and my own academic integrity to do it.

This sense of obligation to be academically honest has led me to be an outspoken critic of how academe is taught and taught by the media.

It has led to a series of books, several books by other scholars, and a documentary about my life called Professors.
