Toward a Scientific Theory of Free Will
Dienstag, 20. Juni 2017, 18:30 bis 20:00
Do we really have a free will? The social psychologist Professor Roy Baumeister is one of the world’s most eminent and influential psychologists. He has published well over 500 scientific articles and more than 30 books. His book “Willpower: Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength” was a global bestseller.
His talk combines a conceptual discussion of the grand problem with free will with laboratory studies, including his work on self-control, decision making, and the new work on glucose, as well as studies on manipulated disbelief in free will. It seeks to provide a scientific understanding of free will as an evolved form of action control suited to enable human beings to function in their complex social environment, including culture.
This event is organized by the Center for Leadership and Behavior in Organization as the first in the new annual Leadership Lectures series. Participation in the event and following reception is free of charge. For registration, please send an email to email@example.com. Registration deadline is June 15th, 2017.
