The smart System 1: Towards a dual process theory 2.0

Practical information
10 April 2018
11:30am - 1pm

Jaurès, 29 rue d'Ulm


The two-headed, dual process view of human thinking has been very influential in the cognitive sciences. The core idea that thinking can be conceived as an interplay between a fast-intuitive and slower-deliberate process has inspired a wide range of psychologists, philosophers, and economists. However, despite the popularity of the dual process framework it faces multiple challenges. One key issue is that the precise interaction between intuitive and deliberate thought processes (or System 1 and 2, as they are often referred to) is not well understood. In my talk I will give an overview of recent empirical advances and show how these force us to re-conceptualize the dual process model of human cognition.
