Lecture to explore theories of how the mind works

The Centre for Research in Reasoning, Argumentation, and Rhetoric presents philosopher Guillaume Beaulac of Yale University on “A Taxonomy for Dual-Process Theories,” Thursday, November 13, at 4 p.m. in room 209, Essex Hall.

“Dual-process theories offer a rich framework to understand how the mind works, but to this day, very few have offered a way to compare how proposed accounts differ beyond the distinction between default-interventionist and parallel-competitive models,” Dr. Beaulac says.

His paper suggests such a taxonomy, distinguishing most notably realist accounts from instrumentalist accounts.

Attendance is free and open to the public.
