Why is there so much disagreement in the world? Is all of it due to irrationality? Or is it possible for rational people to disagree—even after people have laid out the reasons for their beliefs?
We will discuss these and other important questions at the next Meeting of the Minds event, Why We Disagree. Our speakers are professor Emir Kamenica and visiting professor Pamela Paresky, PhD ’05 (Human Development and Psychology). The conversation will be moderated by Marion Brooks.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, Ginger Schultheis is unable to participate. Pamela Paresky will be joining the conversation in her place.
The event is the third in a new discussion series cohosted by Chicago Booth and the Stevanovich Institute on the Formation of Knowledge at the University of Chicago.
We invite you to join us in sharpening our capacity for analytical thinking, creativity, and innovation, and in exploring new insights that can fuel the development of business, as well as for the many areas of human endeavor with which it intersects.
