M155: Geometrical Mind in Splash Spring 2016 (Feb. 27, 2016)
Fractals. Chaos. Information. Language. Truth. We'll use mathematics to tie these ideas together, and see how they provide a powerful new way of thinking about the conscious mind.

P156: Game Theory and Human Goodness in Splash Spring 2016 (Feb. 27, 2016)
An economist, a philosopher, and a game theorist are chatting. The economist says, "People are selfish." The philosopher replies, "Well, sometimes. But we often do the morally right thing." The game theorist says to them, "What if I told you you're both right?" This class will introduce some basic game theory concepts, then apply them to the controversial topic of human social psychology.
