Guest lecture in Steven Pinker’s class “Rationality”

In March this year, I gave a guest talk in Professor Steven Pinker’s Harvard General Education class “Rationality”. In my talk I presented an overview of “The Cognitive Science of Prospection”.

My talk followed an interesting Q&A between Professor Pinker and Bina Venkataraman, an Editor at The Boston Globe, former advisor in the Obama administration, and author of “The Optimist’s Telescope: Thinking Ahead in a Reckless Age”

The class was recorded and you can watch it online here.
