OLLI at UAH Course - Psychological Reality and Unwarranted Beliefs

Wednesday, September 14, 2022- October 19, 2022 Multiday event - 35 days

8:30 AM10:00 AM

Wilson Hall

Offered through Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at UAH

Why do so many people believe in things that are untrue? Because the psychological reality is not a duplication of physical reality and because we live in a world of uncertainty and complexity, the same imaginative qualities that can lead to creativity and innovation render us susceptible to mistaken beliefs, exploitation by various influencers, and unwarranted belief in conspiracy theories. Please join us as we review the psychological science underlying building blocks of psychological reality, then relate those results to what we know about social influence and cultural contributions to mixing fantasy and reality into fantastic belief.
