F653 Summer 2018 Decision-Making in Life—A Calculus (DMIL-AC)
Thursdays, 11:50–1:15, June 21–July 12
Instructor: Mike Stewart
Dive a little deeper into everyday decisions shaping your life and attitude. Big and small, ad hoc and calculated, heated and cold, good and bad—decisions can be irrevocable. Therefore, it seems prudent to understand how to make the best possible decisions; decisions in personal finance, traffic habits, health, business, relationships, cognitive care, civil discourse, etc. We will review various media to dissect the decisions available to the participant(s) and the paths chosen. The material is comprised of historical and contemporary sources, largely derived from the instructor's personal experiences and observations, with many vignettes from open source materials. Explore aspects of decision-making geometry, edge management, and other emerging concepts.
