â€˜Team Reasoningâ€™, Prof David Papineau
Margaret Thatcher said 'There is no such thing as society, only individualsâ€™. Most economists and biologist agree, and as a result find much cooperative human behaviour puzzling. But in truth humans often operate as teams, not individuals, and succeed precisely because of this. Sporting success is the most obvious example, but the moral is a general one.
Film screening: 7.25pm-9.30pm.
The event (lecture + film) is FREE but ticketed. Tickets can be booked via the Belmont Filmhouse website (www.belmontfilmhouse.com), by phone (01224 343 500) or by visiting the Filmhouse ticket desk (49 Belmont St).
