Knowledge Resistance: Its Nature and the Underlying Psychological Mechanisms

Åpent
Det Norske Videnskaps-Akademi, Drammensveien 78, Oslo
MINNETALE

Møte åpner med at Jon Eigill Johansen holder minnetale over Synnøve Liaaen Jensen.

We will clarify the notion of knowledge resistance from a philosophical point of view, characterizing it as a distinctive type of irrational response to the available evidence. We will also discuss the psychological mechanisms involved, some of the experimental data and what research tells us about how to counteract the resistance.

Professorene Åsa Wikforss, Kathrin Glüer-Pagin og Torun Lindholm Öjmyr ved Stockholms universitet innleder dette temamøte på engelsk.
