Steve Solman of Brown University will be speaking on November 8, 2017.
His current focus concerns ignorance and the community of knowledge. The illusion of explanatory depth is the finding that people think they understand how things work better than they in fact do.
The Departmental Colloquia are open to the public and take place in Schermerhorn Hall, Room 614 on Wednesdays from 4:10-5:30pm.
There will be an informal reception immediately following the talk in the 3rd floor Rotunda area.
