  1. Good talk about conditionality. However, I wish that he had explained better what regression towards the mean is about. Not only do tall fathers tend to have less tall sons, tall sons tend to have less tall fathers. He left the impression that regression towards the mean is some temporal process, which is what Galton originally thought.

    Kahneman’s observation about rewarding good behavior and punishing bad behavior reminded me of Neill’s experience at Summerhill, where he rewarded bad behavior and saw the students’ behavior improve.😉
