How Thinking Goes Astray

How Thinking Goes Astray

Thursday, October 11, 2007

The New York Academy of Sciences

Presented By

Presented by the Lyceum Society


Speaker: Edith Neimark, PhD

All Lyceum meetings (except December and June) are Brown Bag lunches.
Brown Bag: 11:30 am; Discussion: 1pm to 3 pm.


Thinking is a process of making sense of experience. It does so by resolving two questions: What is it? and How does it work?
A general framework for understanding these two issues will be followed by a more specific consideration of how thinking goes astray in problem solving and decision making. Cognitive styles will be discussed if time permits.
