Philosophers’ Café: We have nothing to fear but…

The next UW-Green Bay Philosophers’ Café has an exceedingly timely topic: “The Perception of Risk.” Epidemiology expert Sue Mattison, UW-Green Bay’s dean of the College of Professional Studies, will be the discussion leader for the gathering from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday (Dec. 9) at St. Brendan’s Inn, 234 S. Washington St. in downtown Green Bay. Do we overestimate our risk of certain outcomes, like plane crashes, cancer, or terrorist attacks? How difficult it is to change these perceptions? Just how much data do we need to refute fear? (Please note: The location for this month’s program has been shifted to St. Brendan’s Inn.)
