How We Decide
Do decisions made by friends or family members sometimes make you wonder. . .? Have you ever scratched your head about some decision that you’ve made? Why aren’t we always rational? The quality of our lives depends upon a variety of decisions that we make—interpersonal, financial, political, moral, and lots more—but is our thinking always logical? This seminar, building on recent findings in cognitive science, will develop some key foundational insights regarding human decision-making. People learn best through interactions; come prepared to join enlivened discussions by reading How We Decide by Jonah Lehrer prior to the seminar.
