Psychology is seeking a comprehensive, integrative approach to understanding motivated human behavior; that is, one that covers action, thinking, feeling, and learning. Preferably that approach would be formal (e.g., mathematical). In this presentation several computational models, all based on a simple information processing structure called the self-regulatory agent, are presented to account for various well-known (e.g., the goal gradient effect [Hull, 1934]) and not so well-known phenomena (e.g., the discontinuous, nonmonotonic expectancy model [Vancouver, More, & Yoder, 2008]; the discrepancy-reversal effect [Schmidt & DeShon, 2007]) in the action and thinking domains. Extensions to learning and feeling are also described.

18:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - Re-Inventing Ethics Website | More Information
A public lecture by Mary C. Gentile, Director of the ‘Giving Voice to Values’ curriculum, Babson College

Does ethics make us happy? Too often we view our ethical decisions as constraints on action - a set of “thou shalt nots”. What if we instead looked at these choices as the opportunities to be more of who we already are, at our best? Would that approach unleash a new energy, motivation and skillfulness? In this public lecture Mary C. Gentile will share a simple re-framing that has caught the attention and the hearts of people around the world and that is helping business and public practitioners as well as educators to unleash the values-driven energy and creativity that they already possess.

Mary C. Gentile, Ph.D., is Director of Giving Voice to Values (GVV), a business curriculum launched by Aspen Institute and Yale School of Management, now based and funded at Babson College, Wellesley, Massachusetts. GVV is a pioneering approach to values-driven leadership that has been featured in Financial Times, Harvard Business Review, Stanford Social Innovation Review, McKinsey Quarterly and BizEd. GVV has been and piloted in over 150 business schools and organizations globally. She is the author of Giving Voice To Values: How To Speak Your Mind When You Know What’s Right (2010, Yale University Press). Gentile is Senior Research Scholar at Babson College; Senior Advisor, Aspen Institute Business & Society Program; and independent consultant. Previously she was a faculty member and manager of case research at Harvard Business School. While at Harvard Business School (1985-95), Gentile was one of the principal architects of the innovative educational program, Leadership, Ethics and Corporate Responsibility.

This lecture is a part of the Institute of Advanced Studies 2012 lecture series ‘Global Transformation and Public Ethics’. This series of free public lectures aims to stimulate considered debate about urgent issues in public ethics and policy as well as reflecting on ways we can improve public discourse about such issues.

Cost: Free, no RSVP required.
