Philosophy Forum 13/04/2017: Kahneman: Thinking Fast and Slow

Dear All

following on from the discussion of the LIDA interpretation of Kahneman’s ideas the forum will look at some of Kahneman’s work itself.

There is a variety of material by which we might do this. I propose as a basic we read this abstract of the text and supplement it will as much of the first section of the text itself as anyone can manage. By that I mean the section which follows the introduction and begins with ‘the characters in the story’.  I am informed that the essay in appendix B is also worth a look though whether or not anyone has time to read that as well I don’t know.

The meeting is in UL102 14:15-15:45

best wishes

Philosophy Forum 06/04/2017-Faghihi et al: A cognitive model fleshes out Kahneman’s fast and slow systems

Dear All

this week the forum will follow a thread that emerged in the discussion on expertise: Kahneman’s system 1 and system 2 model. This paper looks at the implementation of it as a system of cognition and will hopefully be an interesting springboard for discussion.

The reading is available here and the meeting will be at the slightly earlier time of 13:15-14:45 in UL102.

with best wishes

Graham
