Class Details

One aspect of “being human” is that we often make choices that we know are bad for us. In this course we survey theoretical and experimental approaches to understanding our strengths and weaknesses as decision makers. Topics include normative decision theories, biases in probability judgments, “fast and frugal” heuristics, impulsiveness and self-control, addictions and bad habits, gambling, and moral decision making.
