Ep. 1074: Frank Keil Interview with Michael Covel on Trend Following Radio

My guest today is Frank Keil, a professor of psychology & linguistics, and the chair of the psychology department at Yale University. Keil received his B.S. in Biology from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1973, an M.A. in Psychology from Stanford University in 1975, and a Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania in 1977. Keil has published extensively on topics concerned with many areas in the development of cognition and language. 

The topic is his book Wonder: Childhood and the Lifelong Love of Science.

In this episode of Trend Following Radio we discuss:

  • Childhood
  • Different senses of wonder
  • Arguing in ways both wonderful and productive
  • How students explore and learn
  • How does science work, given how limited we are as computational creatures
  • How do young children track simple patterns and put them into miniature theories
  • How vital the word “audacity” is
  • What is the significance of the word “lifelong”
