Kahneman’s New Way to Think About Thinking

 In Money Habits & Attitudes Blog

Writing in “The Anti-Gladwell: Kahneman’s New Way to Think About Thinking” in The Atlantic, Maria Popova (@brainpicker) calls psychologist (and Nobel laureate and founding father of modern behavioral economics) Daniel Kahneman “one of the most influential thinkers of our time … his work has shaped how we think about human error, risk, judgement, decision-making, happiness, and more.”

About his new memoir, Thinking, Fast and Slow, Popova says:

Absorbingly articulate and infinitely intelligent, this “intellectual memoir” introduces what Kahneman calls the machinery of the mind — the dual processor of the brain, divided into two distinct systems that dictate how we think and make decisions. One is fast, intuitive, reactive, and emotional … The other is slow, deliberate, methodical, and rational.
