Ben Newell

Ben Newell is Professor of Psychology at UNSW Sydney. He has published many articles and book chapters on human judgement and decision making, and has an enduring fascination with the role that the unconscious plays in our decisions. His most recent book is Open Minded: Searching for Truth about the Unconscious Mind, co-authored with Professor David Shanks. It is a provocative look at the unconscious mind that challenges contemporary perceptions and exposes the indefensible science that fostered them.
