Philip Tetlock

University of California, Berkeley

Research Initiative:

Philip Tetlock, Mitchell Professor of Leadership at the University of California, Berkeley, will work on several projects relating to the political implications of the ways in which people make decisions and systematically err in judgment. His work will touch on the decision-making of political experts, the ways in which a society’s moral boundaries limit new thinking, and how a person’s willingness to consider historical counterfactuals relates to their understanding of the past and the future.
