report from Rocky Mountain #5

DSCF0536
After we feasted on a breakfast of bacon, sauage, tofu scramble, breakfast burritos, and fresh orange juice, we enjoyed Saturday's plenary speaker, Linda Berger, who spoke on "Psychological Insights and Legal Persuasion:  Judicial Decision Making as Human Behavior and Expert Problem Solving."  Professor Berger discussed intuitve decisionmaking as involving a blend of fast and slow thinking, or intuition and mental simulation.  She discussed examples from several cases that illustrated the development of parallel patterns and then the expert's imagining how a responsive course of action might be carried out.  She also discussed metaphor and storytelling as sources for solving problems.
