It's been too long (sorry!), but we're finally getting together for another Deep Thinkers meetup! This topic comes courtesy of longtime Deep Thinker Chris Clipper, who is making the trek from San Diego to host the discussion, which will focus on the origin of human biases, and to examine how and why they differ from belief.
As Chris puts it:
"Come meet with us and we'll look at the psychology of innate human biases as distinguished from belief. To this end, we will show a couple of experiments in bias that will help to frame the discussion. The discussion is likely to include how and why biases arise and what can be done about them. Including can we avoid biases or are we determined by them? And can bias be logically challenged to reversed?"
We'll be back at the IHOP in Westchester, and Chris will have some audio-visual aids to help get the discussion underway. So, make an early evening of it and come see the gang on Sunday for some invigorating chat. Please invite any friends you want, and remember that you can participate or just sit and enjoy the debate.
Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday, April 7!
