Talk: 5-7 PM, Room 5414
Mixer: 7-8 PM, Room 7113
Professor Jessica Moss (NYU) will present at SWIP-Analytic Monday, September 8th from 5:00-7:00 PM at the Graduate Center, CUNY. Her talk title is “Dual Systems in 400 BC: Plato and the Origins of Contemporary Psychology“.
Abstract: Proponents of contemporary Dual Systems psychology – the view that we have in some sense two minds, one responsible for automatic, associative, intuitive processing, and the other for controlled, inferential, deliberative processing – have sometimes recognized that there are ancient roots to their view. I will argue that we should in fact credit Plato with anticipating this contemporary view in striking, almost comprehensive detail, and also that the contemporary view both illuminates and vindicates Plato’s much-misunderstood notions of parts of the soul and of rationality.
Mixer: Our first presentation of the fall by Jessica Moss will be followed by a SWIP-Analytic Fall Kickoff Mixer featuring philosophy songs written and performed by Vivian Feldblyum. Vivian will be visiting us from McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, where she is a philosophy student. We will also have a special prize to give away at the mixer generously provided by Oxford University Press.
