Intuition Pumps

I just borrowed from the library Daniel Dennett's new book, Intuition Pumps. Therein he gives a lot of thinking tools based largely on our manifest image. He addresses the manifest/scientific image dichotomy on pp. 69-73, just a brief intro. But in practical matters of everyday living, his tools are mostly manifest but based in science and quite useful if you want to think better. There's also a YouTube video on the topic, embedded below.
