The Monty Hall Problem

One of my favorites. Learned about this the first day of a course on Lonergan, oddly enough (or not, really, as much of Lonergan says is counterintuitive and made a nice lead-in). This video is a very eloquent explanation of the problem. Easily half of my classmates refused to believe it. I was skeptical at first, too, admittedly.

I think little exercises like this can make philosophy (Lonergan & Wittgenstein included) less intimidating. This sort of exercise pairs well when you are looking to understand something as frustrating as Wittgenstein’s language games, or anything from Lonergan’s Insight for example.
