Description

Professor George Lakoff, author of Moral Politics: How Liberals and Conservatives Think, Whose Freedom?, and Don’t Think of an Elephant!, explores the connections between cognitive science and political action. Why do many American vote against their own interests? Humans, he argues, are not the rational creatures we’ve so long imagined ourselves to be. Any savvy political campaigns should not assume people will use an objective system of reasoning when deciding how to vote. Lakoff discusses his new book, The Political Mind, and explore how the mind works, how society works, and how they work together.
