The Rubin Screening of Anderson + Gilbert
Screening of Anderson + Gilbert
Presented in association with the Nalanda Institute for Contemplative Science
As psychologist Daniel Gilbert explains, the job of our brain is to fool us, to make believe in what we see so that we can concentrate on what's truly important. In this "Happy Talk," Gilbert and artist Laurie Anderson discuss the nature of reality in the pursuit of happiness, touching on the act of being God. This is a screening of a previously recorded talk from the conversation series, Happy Talk. Post-screening discussion with Dr. Joe Loizzo, Founder and Director, Nalanda Institute for Contemplative Science.
