Convening Yale

February 14, 2018, 11:45 a.m. – 12:45 p.m. EST

Please join us on Wednesday, February 14 for Convening Yale with Tamar Szabó Gendler, Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. Dean Gendler is also the Vincent J. Scully Professor of Philosophy, and Professor of Psychology and Cognitive Science. Her talk will explore her work  related to Alief and Belief.

An alief is an automatic or habitual belief-like attitude that adduces a predictable associative response. In this talk, she will discuss some of the benefits of adopting this notion into our conceptual framework.

Convening Yale presents talks by faculty and leaders from throughout Yale University, who share their research and expertise and help students broaden their understanding of an increasingly complex world. The Convening Yale series is made possible through the generous support of the Robert J. Silver ’50 Fund for Innovation in Management Education.
