Should human thinking be described as an interplay of an intuitive and a logical reasoning process? How does the intuitive system work? Find out more from Dr Wim de Neys.

The two-headed, dual process view of human thinking has been very influential in the cognitive sciences. The core idea that thinking can be conceived as an interplay between a fast-intuitive and slower-deliberate process has inspired a wide range of psychologists, philosophers, and economists.

However, despite the popularity of the dual process framework it faces multiple challenges. One key issue is that the precise interaction between intuitive and deliberate thought processes (or System 1 and 2, as they are often referred to) is not well understood.

In his talk Wim de Neys will give an overview of recent empirical advances and show how these force us to re-conceptualise the dual process model of human cognition.


Dr Wim de Neys is a Research Director at the Université de Paris
