The Art of Relevance

27 sep

The Art of Relevance is the title of the book by Nina Simon. I got it from Emmeline as a graduation gift. In the book two cognitive scientist argue that there are two criteria that make information relevant.

  1. How likely that new information is to stimulate a positive cognitive effect– to yield new conclusions that matter to you
  2. How much effort is required to obtain and absorb that new information. The lower the effort, the higher the relevance.

How relevant is this piece of information to you?
