From evolit to classrooms/education generally

Glad to hear that the evolutionary perspective does some useful blurring of the lines not only between science and humanities, but also suggests some new ways to think about lectures/discussions/classroom practice as well.  For notes/discussion/resources focused more on the latter, see 

Yes, the important general point is that "there are different ways to approach problems and we are capable of using all of these different ways.  If we understand that borders can be crosses, we can more easily use a different kind of knowledge to solve complex problem that while on the surface may seem one-dimensional, but are in reality cross-disciplinary.''  Hopefully  useful insight in lots of contexts.
