2018 TKR: EDU: The Function of Reason with Hugo Mercier


The Function of Reason 
with Hugo Mercier

Many of us believe our capacity to reason helps us to acquire knowledge and make better decisions - but what if it has an entirely different purpose? Hugo Mercier explains that the essential function of reason is not solitary but social - it exists to help us convince other people or groups of our arguments.

Watch Hugo Mercier, Cognitive Scientist, in our latest RSA Spotlight - the edits which take you straight to the heart of the event!
