    Thinking, Fast and Slow

    by Daniel Kahneman

    For the better part of the 20th century, behavioral psychologists attribute most human actions to the simple fact that we are essentially ignorant of ourselves. While these radical, revolutionary aspects of Freud and others have been molded in a different direction, the ramifications of their work linger to this day. What if the reason we act irrationally in some situations and more cogent in others is due to a more dualistic nature of thought? In Thinking, Fast and Slow, Daniel Kahneman and others subscribing to his (and his longtime professional colleague, Amos Tversky’s) viewpoint of there being two systems of thought: fast, and slow, one is rather intuitive while the other is slow, basking in effort, and deliberate. When we understand our thought processes on a more intimate level, then, we will be able to “improve the ability to identify and understand errors of judgment and choice, in others and eventually in ourselves.”
