This week you’ll want to be sure you check out:
- Quick—what color is the sky? Aatish Bhatia has a fascinating discussion on colors up at Empirical Zeal, demonstrating nicely the ways in which we construct elements of our world that seem so concrete with time.
- And Dr. Stu gets to the bottom of stuttering, steering us away from the dominant psychological explanations with a look at what happens physiologically when we stumble over our words.
Until next time, folks. I’ll be back next week with more from anthropology, philosophy, and research.
