Lunch with Dr. Ariely

Dr. Dan Ariely, James B. Duke Professor of Psychology and Behavioral Economics at Duke University, graciously welcomed members of the Honor Council community into his office for a luncheon and conversation on January 25. To stimulate dynamic discussion, Dr. Ariely first engaged with questions from the audience regarding moral dilemmas on campus. One topic that came up often in conversation was the idea of comparable human values. Dr. Ariely claims that the average person values outcome over process, which leads to a series of harmful choices such as lying or corruption. Specifically, honesty and friendship were brought up as two contradicting human values when applied to academic integrity.
