The Art of Changing Your Mind

  • December 4, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Can you think outside of the box, and why not? This discussion will circle around the question of how independent our thinking really is. We will discuss, for a little while, the question of “original thinking”, post modernistic (or other) reasons why we might or might not be able to think independently.

We hope to spend the larger part of the discussion on strategies and techniques that might enhance our capacity of independent thinking, and that strengthen our ability to change our mind on topics, when it is prudent to do so.

    I was so looking forward to joining this conversation but didn't see the acceptance email to this group in time. :( I bet it was a good one!

    I was hoping to feel better by this evening - but I am down with a nasty cold. See you all next time.

    I believe there will be some snacks and a bottle of beaujolais nouveau but please feel free to bring some food to share or maybe another bottle of wine

    Is this going to be a pot luck or should we eat ahead of time?

    It seems to me that part of it is getting rid of cognitive biases.
    If you want an easy introduction (if you didn t already plunge into the Kahneman book -Thinking fast and slow-) you can check out this video: http://youtu.be/dTJLchCHsrc (note that I am not sure that the last example is well chosen but I think the video introduces well what cognitive biases are).
