Why is it that when we try to stop thinking about a white bear, we become obsessed with it? Dan Wegner studied how we perceive and control our minds. He was a professor of psychology at Harvard University. This is an archive of his pioneering work in social psychology on topics that include mind perception, thought suppression, and many more.
"Daniel Wegner's final book is a masterpiece made ever more precious by his untimely death. Thankfully, his brilliance and wit live on—in these pages, and in his collaborator and protégé, Kurt Gray, who presents their ideas with clarity, depth, and style. The Mind Club is not to be missed." —Daniel Gilbert, author of Stumbling on Happiness
