Is cooperation intuitive? Is greed calculated? Does the truth come naturally? Does lying necessarily require cognitive effort?

The classical economic approach suggest that self-interest drives behavior. Greed is thus expected to be the default, and cooperation calculated. Self-serving lies should be easy to generate, while honesty less so. The classical cognitive psychological approach, on the contrary, considers honesty the default, and holds that lying requires deliberation. While these two research lines have long lived parallel to each other, there is recent cross-interaction.
The goal of this interactive symposium is to bring together these perspectives, and to strengthen interdisciplinary collaboration. This symposium will discuss recent work that may reveal the conditions in which norm obeying behavior is intuitive, or rather calculated.
The symposium is open for anyone interested, but requires registration before April 20 as the number of places is limited.
There are a limited number of spots available for PhD or post-doctoral students to present their work at a Blitz session (~5-7 minutes talks).
Decisions will be communicated before April 15th.
