CHI: Thought Leader Dinner & Discussion - Daniel Casasanto @ Homestead on the Roof


Members joined us for an intimate IVY Thought Leader Dinner & Discussion with renowned cognitive neuroscientist and University of Chicago Professor, Daniel Casasanto! Daniel guided us through a compelling conversation focused on the theory of a universal mind, the idea that despite differences in opinion and thought, our general brain processing is the same across humanity. Daniel argues against this theory, claiming that our very experiences in life influence the way that our brains develop and how we process information. By exploring how language, culture, and bodily experiences influence the way we think, feel, and make decisions, we learned how our very own experiences with the physical and social world shape our brain and minds. This special evening took place in the beautiful private dining room of Homestead on the Roof, where we enjoyed a delicious three-course meal, unlimited wine, and unforgettable conversation with a fascinating group of IVY members.
