HAT Forum, Saturday, June 22, 11am - 1pm.
LOCATION:   OISE, 252 Bloor Street West
Topic: Denial
Facilitator: Moses Klein

Denial, in the psychological sense, is usually considered a bad thing, but a new book argues that it is essential to human evolutionary progress. See http://www.theglobeandmail.com/technology/science/is-denial-the-secret-of-humanitys-success/article12428138/#dashboard/follows/ (article in June 7 Globe and Mail). What functions does denial serve? Do you see any advantages to it, and with what limitations?
