Thought Experiments on the Question of Being Human: The Science of Changing Your Mind
Our special theme this year is The Science of Changing Your Mind and, with the help of the University of Washington Psychology Department, we have invited four scientists and teamed each scientist with a local Seattle playwright. Their collaborations have lead to the creation of four intriguing short plays, each exploring the science underlying : How we make decisions, how we change our minds - or dont. And what all that might have to do with how to be human - together.
