Yeah Politics - 07/08/2013 - Political Psychology

On the 7th of August, The Yeah Sessions dipped nervously into the muddy pond of politics.

Our second speaker was Tim Dean, speaking on the genuinely fascinating patterns we find when we look at political viewpoints from a psychological perspective, and some of the ways that our political views might be more predictable than we think.

Tim Dean is an established science journalist, and editor of the Australian Life Scientist Magazine. He is completing a PhD in philosophy at UNSW, researching the evolution of morality. Check out his blog here, and read his fantastic articles on ABC's The Drum, here.

Tim is also editor-in-chief of Wonder - an excellent website dedicated to rational appreciation of the natural world, and most definitely well worth checking out.

More videos coming very soon, people!
