Duke University is offering an online course called "A Beginner's Guide to Irrational Behavior". This 8-week-long-course will commence from 11th March, 2014.
About the Course:
This course will draw heavily on my own research, and pulls largely from my three books: Predictably Irrational (2008), The Upside of Irrationality (2010), and The Honest Truth About Dishonesty (2012). We will examine topics such as our "irrational" patterns of thinking about money and investments, how expectations shape perception, economic and psychological analyses of dishonesty by honest people, how social and financial incentives work together (or against each other) in labor, how self-control comes into play with decision making, and how emotion (rather than cognition) can have a large impact on economic decisions. This highly interdisciplinary course will be relevant to all human beings.
Dan Ariely will be the course instructor.
The course will have a workload of 7-11 hours of work/week.
It will be taught in English. Subtitles will be available in English, Portuguese and Russian.
