Daniel Kahneman

Daniel Kahneman is an Israeli-American psychologist and economist, notable for his work on the psychology of judgment and decision-making, as well as behavioral economics, for which he was awarded the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences in 2002. His research has challenged the assumption of human rationality prevailing in modern economic theory. Kahneman is also the author of the popular book 'Thinking, Fast and Slow', which summarizes his research and explores the dichotomy between two modes of thought: 'System 1' which is fast, intuitive, and emotional; 'System 2' which is slower, more deliberative, and more logical.

  1. 1. Thinking, Fast and Slow

    The book delves into the two systems that drive the way we think—System 1, which is fast and intuitive, and System 2, which is slow and deliberate. The author, a Nobel laureate, explores how these systems shape our judgments and decision-making. He presents several groundbreaking experiments that have shaped our understanding of human thought, revealing where we can trust our intuitions and how we can tap into the benefits of slow thinking. The book also discusses how our cognitive biases often lead to errors in judgment and affect our decision-making processes.
