Improving decision-making processes in complex environments

Project: Research

Project Details

Project Description

The high level of complexity in modern post-industrial societies makes it difficult for individuals to engage effectively with social problems. This project will undertake a new study of complexity. It will show that decision making is premised on acts of selection that reduce complexity. The significance of this project will be its demonstration that aesthetic evaluations regularly play a role in such acts of selection. To help individuals make better decisions this project will develop a new understanding of how aesthetic factors can be used to reduce complexity.
