At what age should a child be taught pan-critical rationalism? Does the
(of a well-meaning parent) to abide superstitions, fairy tales, and
Santa Claus inhibit a young person's creativity, something that is
invaluable for later success? (yes, even in technical fields!)

We could also develop a curriculum for adults, much like the fictional
Zetetic Institute in Steigler's _David's Sling_. The Prisoner's
Dilemma, Transactional Analysis, Kepner-Tregoe's Problem Solving, what

With respect to the reading list, should _Sling_ be on there? Also,
can you recommend one or two of those for me to start with?
