Event description

There is vastly more going on in our heads than we realise. In this lightning tour of human reasoning, world-renowned psychologist Richard Nisbett, author of 'Mindware: Tools for Smart Thinking', shines a new light on the shadowy world of the way we think – and how we can make our lives, and the lives of those around us, better.


Richard Nisbett is Theodore M. Newcomb Distinguished Professor of social psychology and co-director of the Culture and Cognition program at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor.

"The most influential thinker, in my life, has been the psychologist Richard Nisbett. He basically gave me my view of the world." –Malcolm Gladwell
