The Deception of Self and Others: Empirical Frontiers and Theoretical Opportunities
Deception is emerging as a generic feature of the social and biological world. Biologists studying crabs or apes; economists studying financial markets or advertising; computational scientists studying online social networks: all find themselves addressing deception, self-deception, and their consequences. Yet the deception of self or others does not fit comfortably into existing theoretical traditions. This workshop capitalizes on the opportunity for synthesis, bringing together empirical researchers who study deception in the real world with theorists who model it formally. We hope to start conversations that will continue long after the workshop.
This workshop is free and open to the public
Presented by the UCLA Institute for Society and Genetics. Co-sponsored with generous support from the UCLA Department of Sociology (Knowledge and Cognitive Systems Working Group, Computational Sociology Group, and Irene Flecknoe Ross Lecture Series)
