Why do we disagree?

In this bonus episode, recorded in front of a live virtual audience, Professor Paul Dolan and his guests discuss the neuroscience and social science behind the polarisation problem. Why do we take sides on so many issues? What makes us want to be part of one group and not another? What drives our judgements, choices and assumptions?

 

Paul was joined by his LSE colleague Dr Jennifer Sheehy Skeffington, and fellow academics Dr Lasana Harris from University College London, Professor Anil Seth from the University of Sussex, and Dr Tiffany Watt Smith from Queen Mary University.
