Brains Blog Roundtable: Agency

Our wonderful participants in this roundtable are John Doris (Cornell), Chandra Sripada (Michigan) and Robyn Waller (Iona). Join us for a really fun discussion about the ways that philosophical and scientific models of agency interact, the ways that agency can go awry, the application of philosophical analysis of agency to problems faced by organizations and the public, and much more!
