Rational Intuition at the RSA

I am very excited for my lecture at the RSA on rational intuition on 1 December 2011.

The lecture draws on my larger offering of a motivational package for a wide range of organisations in the private and public sector.

Rational Intuition is my way of thinking about how we make good decisions. It argues that an over-reliance on ‘self-interested’ rationality can lead to incorrect solutions to problems. I argue that a combination of rationality and intuition, that form of practical wisdom that comes from long term expertise (or unconscious competence), provides the best way forward for key decisions that have lasting impact.

The argument is developed in two ways: (1) it uses multiple examples from my work as a Professor of Political Science and International Consultant (including interesting date from Glowinkowksi International) and (2) illustrative demonstrations from my work as a professional magician and Associate of the Inner Magic Circle (AIMC).

    Downloaded the podcast and listened to the lecture over the holidays. Great stuff, although it’s always quite difficult to follow the magic when you can only hear cards flipping in the background!

  • Todd:

    Thanks Paul. I am told a video will also be available.

    Best wishes
