Hidden Brain, The
While we like to believe that our decisions are made in a thoughtful way, we know that our emotions and unconscious processes have a profound impact on our choices and attitudes. Our “hidden brain” is largely responsible for who we love, who we hate and the clothes we buy. We can have sympathy for one injured animal, yet lose interest in frequent stories of mass human deprivation and death. Author Shankar Vedantum, an NPR social science correspondent, presents anecdotes and research on the ways that we think. Read the Introduction and Chapters 1 and 2 for the first session.
