The FABBS Foundation, with support from Worth Publishers, is pleased to announce a new science café scheduled for Feb. 6, 2013, in New York City. The café will feature behavioral scientist and New York Times bestselling author, Dan Ariely. The FABBS Foundation science cafes are focused on bringing interesting science topics to the general public in a casual environment.
Ariely’s talk, “The Science of Self Control and How We Can Use it To Our Advantage” will describe why we often do not act in our own best interest, or in other words, why we focus on the short-term goal of what is good for us now rather than the long-term goal of what is good for us in the future.
The talk will be held at The Yale Club in New York City, beginning at 6pm. A reception will be held following the event.
