Tonight we will explore how we justify and rationalise our own beliefs. Oh, and also consider the simple question of ‘who are we?’ Easy!

Who are we?

Dr. Matti Wilks ( Lecturer in Psychology at the University of Edinburgh)
Our moral circles capture who we do and do not consider worthy of moral concern. In my research, I explore differences in how we value others—including people, animals, nature, and artificial life. Our data reveals that factors about who we are have a big impact on who we choose to value.

How do we argue?

Dr. Zachary Horne (Lecturer in Psychology at the University of Edinburgh)
My research investigates attitude change and the formation of attitudes. I'm particularly interested in how people produce arguments to support their views, and the efficacy of these arguments. I investigate these issues using a range of methods including behavioural studies with adults and children, data mining, and machine learning techniques.
