It Depends on Your Frame of Mind
This seminar builds upon a similar seminar of 2017, “And We Thought We Were Thinking Rationally”, and digs deeper into the implications of recent cognitive research regarding how we process information. The seminar will focus on how language and social dynamics frame or shape thought processing. Participants from last year’s seminar and those who have “digested” the book Thinking, Fast and Slow are invited to attend. Others are invited to consider attending the seminar, “How We Decide” to be held September 9-14.
