Outsmarting Human Minds

I will provide a sketch of the many paths to outsmart ourselves—from an individual’s conscious exertion of control over behavior, to the power of collectives in shaping new norms, to social movements that are caused by and affect legal change. To start any process of change, a substantial number of people must first become aware of what we might seek to change and why. Learn more about an initial effort at, and come ready to discuss how we might take the most robust scientific theories and research from psychological science to improving the state of our society at large.
