So why do we struggle to find validity to the weird? Stephen Law is a philosopher who has spent decades trying to understand if the seemingly inexplicable can actually be considered reasonable. In this guide from Psyche Magazine, he shares a five-step thinking process that will help us weigh evidence cautiously without becoming a closed-minded naysayer.
