The Art of Choosing
Hosted by the Wolf Humanities Center.
This event is free and open to the public.
Considered one of the world's leading experts on choice, Sheena Iyengar asks the difficult questions about how and why we choose: is the desire for choice innate or bound by culture? Why do we sometimes choose against our best interests? How much control do we really have over what we choose? Sheena Iyengar reveals answers that are surprising and profound.
The Wolf Humanities Center is Penn’s main hub for interdisciplinary humanities research and public programming. Established in 2017 by a gift from Noelle and Dick Wolf, the center grew out of the Penn Humanities Forum, founded by Wendy Steiner in 1999. Our goals are to demonstrate how vital the humanities are to the life of the mind and the health of society, and how fundamentally connected they are with many areas of urgent inquiry in medicine, law, business, and the sciences.
