The Franke Forum presents: Candace Vogler on "Thinking Fast, Slow, and Wisely"

"Thinking Fast, Slow, and Wisely: Practical Wisdom and How it Develops" Candace Vogler is David B. and Clara E. Stern Professor of Philosophy, and the College. She has been working on what goes on when we work to develop practical wisdom, drawing extensively on research in behavioral ethics and behavioral economics. The aim has been to get clearer about the nature of practical wisdom, and what it takes to develop practical wisdom. Her special focus has been on economics and business contexts, and this talk has its origins in her recently-taught applied ethics class entitled, 'Character and Commerce: Practical Wisdom in Economic Life'.

Sponsored by the University of Chicago's Franke Institute for the Humanities, the Franke Forum is a series of free public lectures by renowned University scholars.

This event is hosted by a campus partner. If you have any questions regarding registration or logistics of the event, where to meet, special assistance requests, parking, please contact Mai Vukcevich, AM'02 at
