(Dis)honesty: How We Lie to Everyone—Including Ourselves

A lecture by Dan Ariely
Wednesday, November 14

Event Oval, The Diana Center

Dan Ariely, James B. Duke Professor of psychology and behavioral economics at Duke University and author of The New York Times bestsellers Predictably Irrational and The Upside of Irrationality, urges us to take an honest look at ourselves by offering a thought-provoking look at preconceptions about dishonesty. Ariely’s interests and research span a wide range of behaviors, and his experiments, often unusual and consistently amusing and informative, fly in the face of conventional wisdom. In his trademark irreverent style, Ariely discusses such questions as conflicts of interest, whether the chance of getting caught affects how likely we are to cheat, and whether companies pave the way for dishonesty. Ariely’s latest work is The (Honest) Truth About Dishonesty: How We Lie to Everyone.
