CFI Regina:Are Humans Reasonable

CFI Regina is having a meetup on human reasoning April 11 at 7pm .  For more Info.

Hey everyone! I’d like to invite all of you to come to Bushwakker on Thursday, April 11, at 7 p.m. to take part in a discussion with Dr. Chris Oriet on the topic of human reasoning.

In this talk, Dr. Oriet will discuss a variety of topics, including how and why people form beliefs and the fallibility of human reasoning. This is a rich and exciting area of Cognitive Psychology and I’m very excited that he has agreed to lead this discussion. Naturally, understanding how people reason is inextricably linked with the goals and objectives of the CFI.

His talk should take approximately 45 minutes, followed by a 10-minute break, and another 45 minutes where he will help to engage attendees in dialogue. Make sure to bring your thinking caps – this is a great opportunity to try and grapple with a complex topic in an interactive and informational forum.

The talk will be located in the Arizona Room at Bushwakker, which is located to the left as soon as you walk up the staircase. The event is free to everyone, but as usual in order to help pay for the room I would ask for a small $5 donation so that we can continue doing these sorts of events in the future. We have the room booked from 6 p.m. onwards.

While this event will not be publicly advertised, you are welcome to invite any of your friends that you think might be interested in this timely topic.

Dr. Oriet holds his Ph.D in Experimental Psychology from the University of Waterloo. He is currently employed at the University of Regina as an Associate Professor and as the Experimental and Applied Psychology graduate program coordinator.

Dr. Oriet’s current research largely focuses on attention and its relationship with human information processing and perception. You can find more information about him on the UofR website: http://www.uregina.ca/arts/psychology/faculty-staff/faculty/oriet-chris.html.
