Why we don’t understand as much as we think we do: Jonathan Drori on TED.com

Starting with four basic questions (that you may be surprised to find you can’t answer), Jonathan Drori looks at the gaps in our knowledge — and specifically, what we don’t about science that we might think we do. (Recorded at TEDU, February 2007 in Monterey, California. Duration: 12:34.)
