Cass Sunstein, the Robert Walmsley University Professor at Harvard Law School, spoke over lunch to a packed hall on Thursday, March 14 on his 2017 Princeton University Press book #Republic: Divided Democracy in the Age of Social Media.
Sunstein talked about how the Internet and cybercascades have exacerbated our natural tendencies toward confirmation bias and helped us consider the practical and legal needs for an “architecture of serendipity.”
This event, open to only University faculty/students/staff was co-sponsored with the University Center for Human Values.
Sunstein added this talk for the Center during his visit to deliver the James A. Moffett '29 Lecture in Ethics at the Princeton University Center for Human Values. The Moffett lecture, entitled "Unleashed: #MeToo and Beyond" took place in Thursday, March 15 at 4:30 p.m. in McCormick 101.
