Informed or Influenced? The Art of Decision-Making

Main Stage

This session will engage with the key issues surrounding human decision-making, from politics, to questions of identity, to capitalism. The panel will enable a conversation between many different disciplines: neuroscience, philosophy, psychology, anthropology, and sociology.
We will consider how human decision-making has evolved. How do sense perceptions and experience form judgments that lead to a decision? What role do emotions play in all this? And fnally, how have social and political shift and technological innovation impacted these
cognitive processes?
