Full description of the book Future-Minded : The Psychology of Agency and Control:What drives us to make decisions? Future-Minded explores the psychological processes of agency and control. If you've ever wondered why we think of coincidences as matters of fate rather than the result of the laws of probability, this book provides the answer. From memory and reasoning to our experiences of causality and consciousness, it unpicks the mechanisms we use on a daily basis to help us predict, plan for and attempt to control the future. Future-Minded * Features a wealth of real world examples to help you engage with this fast-developing area * Provides clear analysis of psychological PDF experiments and their findings to explain the evidence behind the theory Thought-provoking and highly topical, Future-Minded is fascinating reading for psychology students studying cognition or consciousness, and for anyone interested in understanding how we try to determine the future.
