Shafer/Luiker and the Prisoner's Dilemma

Friday, 27 October 2017 6.00pm to 8.00pm - University of Sydney

Psychologists have been watching the splits form in their profession in recent years, gathering strong emotion as it goes, powered by its own self-generated steam and wondered: is this really in the best interests of our profession? Do psychologists feel no more able to intervene or know what to think than when the lines between reality-television and news media become blurred as a ...void opens up - over our Pacific Ocean - between North Korea and the US? Surely, they can do better than this as students of a scientific approach to human behaviour, you may ask? And of course they can. The "prisoner's dilemma" is a standard example of a game analyzed in game theory that shows why two completely "rational" individuals might not cooperate, even if it appears that it is in their best interests to do so. For more information click here

LARGE GROUP MEETING Sydney

23-25 June 2017

Conducted by Teresa von Sommaruga Howard

The Large Group is based on an assumption that the background ’noise’ comprised of the personal, social and political happenings and events of our time impacts upon all of us as we live in the social and global domain. We may be aware or unaware of that noise and how it influences the conduct of our daily lives and relationships. The Large group is a structured, experiential forum, open to the community from all walks of life, with an interest in exploring the background themes of life as they emerge experientially. The format provides a medium for dialogue and reflection in ways that are not usually available in everyday life. Through reflection, dialogue and drawing on their own personal experiences, participants may access and recognise the conscious and unconscious socio-political forces at work within themselves, in their relationships and workplaces, in their communities and the wider society.
