We are discussing the second half of "Thinking Fast and Slow" by Daniel Kahneman. If you didn't get around to reading it, don't worry.

Handy resources about "Thinking Fast and Slow":

  • Summaries and cheat sheets about all of the concepts (heuristics) in the book. We will use the cheat sheets as a helpful reminder or intro to the concepts during our discussion as well.
  • Short 7-minute video is a great overview explaining the ideas of System 1 and System 2 thinking. These two systems are easy to grasp and set up the idea of how we use heuristics.
  • Longer 1-hour video is of Kahneman talking more at length about the concepts in the book.
  • DIGIURI¬†video discussion of¬†chapters 1-22.¬†

The DIGIURI Book and Media Club is developed by Samantha Stanley (University of Hong Kong) and Michael Stoepel (University of Paris).
