Think Week 2014 - Stephen Law & Miguel FariasMonday February 24th, 7:30pm: Do You Believe The Facts Or The Myth?
Friends Meeting House, St Giles
Dr. Stephen Law
Dr. Miguel Farias
A discussion about belief. Humans believe in many different things, but what do we prefer? The science and facts, or stories and myths? Why are our minds inclined this way? And if we do prefer myth over fact, how can we change the nature of our belief?
Philosopher Dr Stephen Law, author of ‘Believing Bullshit’, and Experimental Psychologist Dr Miguel Farias, will present their ideas about these questions and discuss their thoughts. Members of the audience are invited and encouraged to join the resulting discussion.
Presented as part of Think Week 2014, February 24th to March 2nd Oxford
