Bugs in the System
October 16, 2010
Dan Ariely studies the bugs in our moral code and Mark Moffett studies the bugs under our feet. Ariely, in Predictably Irrational and The Upside of Irrationality, gives example after hilarious example of people behaving irrationally despite their most closely held beliefs. Moffett, the ?Indiana Jones of entomology? reveals the incredible and utterly rational behavior of ants in Adventures Among Ants: A Global Safari with a Cast of Trillions. A predictably fascinating session with two veterans of the Colbert Report. Hosted by TV and radio personality Faith Salie. Sponsored by the Plymouth Rock Foundation.
