Prospecting the Future
Thursday, March 7, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 8:45 PM (ACDT)
Professor Martin Seligman, along with colleagues Prof Peter Railton (University of Michigan), Professor Chandra Sripada (University of Michigan) and Professor Roy Baumeister (Florida State University), will be in Adelaide in March to present an exclusive panel event on ‘prospecting’, an exciting new field blending psychology, neuroscience and philosophy.
Historically, psychologists have often thought of people as prisoners of the past. Prospecting looks at how people can become future minded rather than live their lives controlled by the past. Part of breaking the shackles of the past is the development of serious science and pedagogy that looks at how people evaluate possible futures.
This is an opportunity not to be missed. You could be one of the first in the world to hear from four of the world’s leading minds about this new field of inquiry.
Seating is limited so be quick!
Prospecting the Future is being run in partnership between the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute, Economic Development Board and Adelaide Thinkers in Residence, with support from the Shop, Distributive and Allied Employee’s Union, University of Adelaide and Adelaide Convention Centre.
