The Tragedy in Tucson: What Do You Think?

Posted by The Situationist Staff on January 10, 2011

The unfolding news and debates about causes and consequences of yesterday’s tragic violence are raising many of the issues and themes common to this blog.  We hoped our readers would weigh in and share their thoughts and reactions to the events themselves and media discourse that has followed:  Bad Apple? Disposition? Context?  Situation? Spiraling conflict? Naive cynicism?

Below you’ll find some excerpts from today’s Glen Beck and Rush Limbaugh programs.  What do you think?  Please comment.

Gearing Up for the Launch! Be a Participant!

Posted by Adam Benforado on January 10, 2011

As we mentioned recently, the Project on Law and Mind Sciences is currently in the final stages of designing an online study clearinghouse where researchers can post studies and find participants, and interested members of the public can, well, participate!

We believe that this will be a great new resource for all those interested in the broad Situationist endeavor.

In gearing up for the launch, here is a link to a new experiment that I’m running along with two researchers at Cambridge aimed at better understanding how people process information.

Participate today!  Here!
