Tuesday, May 19, 2015, 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Gravity Taphouse & Grille, 3210 Deposit Dr SE, Grand Rapids, MI, View Map

This is a great opportunity for skeptics to talk, share ideas (and yes, drink) in a casual, relaxed atmosphere. We discuss the issues of the day and whatever else is on our minds. But most of all, we have fun while promoting skepticism, science, and rationality.

Don't drink? Don't let that stop you from joining us! Some of the world's most famous skeptics are teetotalers, and we are happy to have you!

The Psychological Traits that Underlie Ideology (Grand Rapids)

Wednesday, May 27, 2015, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Women's City Club, 254 E. Fulton St., Grand Rapids, MI, View Map

Presented by Luke Galen, PhD, Associate Professor of Psychology, Grand Valley State University

Description

Individuals differ in the way they view political issues. But do liberals, conservatives, libertarians, socialists, authoritarians and other political types differ in their underlying psychological characteristics?

The field of political psychology aims to understand how ideology is influenced by fundamental psychological aspects such as motivation, perception, cognition, information processing, biology, genetics, learning, and socialization. The presentation will explore how political ideology manifests in domains such as assumptions about human nature, social and economic preferences, morality, and explanatory attributions.

His main area of research and teaching focuses on the psychology of religion. His areas of research include the study of secularity and nonreligious groups, religious fundamentalism and the psychology of belief and non-belief.
