Chris Paley

Dr Chris Paley has an MSci and a PhD from the University of Cambridge. He is the author of Unthink: Why You Don’t Think The Way You Think You Think. In Chris’s view the greatest scientific leap of his generation is throwing off common-sense assumptions about the mind: what it’s doing for us, why we have morals, and how we make decisions. This leaves scientists free to overturn millennia of fruitless theorising and truly explain why we are what we are and think what we think. He has a wife, three blameless daughters and an imaginary, but mischievous, cat. Chris might believe himself to be thoroughly amoral, but his wife thinks him ‘a good man’.
