    City Arts & Lectures Daniel Kahneman: Thinking Fast and Slow Daniel Kahneman is one of the most influential living psychologists. Along with his late collaborator, Amos Tversky, Kahneman is credited with founding the study of behavioral economics. In 2002, Kahneman won the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences for his research on the irrational ways in which humans make decisions about risk. Based on his decades of study with Tversky, Kahneman's recent book, "Thinking Fast and Slow," is an exploration of the psychological basis for reactions, judgments, recognition, choices, conclusions, and much more. Kahneman is professor emeritus of psychology and public affairs at the Woodrow Wilson School, the Eugene Higgins Professor of Psychology Emeritus at Princeton University, and a fellow at the Center for Rationality at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. He appeared in conversation with Jonathan Bass, a partner at the law firm of Coblentz, Patch, Duffy and Bass LLP, on April 2, 2013 at the Herbst Theatre.
