Alpbach Lab 01: The Moral Brain: Framing, Values, and Democracy

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Lab
in englischer Sprache

Recent research has shown that most reasoning is automatic, non-controllable, and unconscious and that minds cannot process facts by themselves, but depend on mental structures called „frames“. In this lab, participants will find out about the most up-to-date Cognitive Science research on political language, cognition, and decision-making. Frames that are predominant in current European public discourses will be analysed and discussed. Tools that help develop frames for specific political issues will be practiced together, and groundwork for successful cognitive campaigning will be laid.
