Stafford Little Lecture Series
In this talk, Nobel Prize Recipient Daniel Kahneman will sketch a view of the mind that brings together a great deal of psychological research and trace its implication for an understanding of the limited role of reason in our lives. He will also trace his current views to ideas that fascinated him as an undergraduate, to life experiences, to friendships — and to luck.
Daniel Kahneman received the Nobel Prize for Economics in 2002 for “for having integrated insights from psychological research into economic science, especially concerning human judgment and decision-making under uncertainty.” He has received numerous awards, including the 2013 Presidential Medal of Freedom. His 2011 book Thinking, Fast and Slow was a New York Times bestseller. He is a Princeton Professor Emeritus in the Department of Psychology and the Woodrow Wilson School of Public Policy.
This event, sponsored by the Stafford Little Lecture Series, is free and open to the public. For more information on this and other lectures in the series, please visit lecture.princeton.edu
