What's the talk about?
We are very sorry to announce that Ulrike is ill and has had to cancel her talk tonight. There will be no talk this evening.
The talk describes how and why considerations of rationality matter for understanding human behaviour. Using case studies from recent research on 'unrealistic optimism' as well as so-called 'fallacies of argumentation' it examines why coming to snappy conclusions about human (ir)rationality is hard.
Ulrike Hahn is professor of psychology at Birkbeck College London. She is presently a member of the Senior Editorial Board for Topics in Cognitive Science and an Associate Editor for Frontiers in Cognitive Science. She has served as an Associate Editor for the Psychological Bulletin & Review, and as Consulting Editor for Psychological Review, as well as contributing occasional reviews to over 30 different journals, and a wide range of national and international funding bodies. In December 2015 she was elected Fellow of the German National Academy of Science, Leopoldina.
