Judgment pervades human experience. Do I have a strong enough case to go to trial? Will the Fed change interest rates? Can I trust this person? This book examines how people answer such questions. How do people cope with the complexities of the world economy, the uncertain behavior of friends and adversaries, or their own changing tastes and personalities? When are people's judgments prone to bias, and what is responsible for their biases? This book compiles psychologists' best attempts to answer these important questions.

From the Publisher:

Daniel Kahneman is co-winner of the 2002 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences. The award was bestowed in recognition of the influential research conducted by Kahneman and his long-time collaborator, the late Amos Tversky, on the psychology of human judgment and decision-making. According to a recent article published in the journal Psychological Science, the research program initiated by Kahneman and Tversky is considered psychology’s "leading intellectual export to the wider academic world." Current scholarship and research in medicine, law, public policy, international relations, and economics has been profoundly shaped by their insights into human rationality.

About the Author:

Thomas Gilovich is a professor of psychology at Cornell University and author of "The Wisest One in the Room, " "How We Know What Isn t So", " Why Smart People Make Big Money Mistakes", " and Social Psychology". He lives in Ithaca, New York.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Is our case strong enough to go to trial? Will interest rates go up? Can I trust this person? Such questions - and the judgments required to answer them - are woven into the fabric of everyday experience. This book, first published in 2002, examines how people make such judgments. The study of human judgment was transformed in the 1970s, when Kahneman and Tversky introduced their heuristics and biases approach and challenged the dominance of strictly rational models. Their work highlighted the reflexive mental operations used to make complex problems manageable and illuminated how the same processes can lead to both accurate and dangerously flawed judgments. The heuristics and biases framework generated a torrent of influential research in psychology - research that reverberated widely and affected scholarship in economics, law, medicine, management, and political science. This book compiles the most influential research in the heuristics and biases tradition since the initial collection of 1982 (by Kahneman, Slovic, and Tversky). Seller Inventory # AAZ9780521796798
