The Architecture of Belief: An Essay on the Unbearable Automaticity of Believing

Dissertations are funny things. I wouldn't suggest reading them for a good time. That said, a few times a year I'll be asked to send someone a copy. In case you're one of these odd folks who want to read a dissertation, a version of mine is linked above. I highly recommend reading something more fun (I was compelled to excise the jokes, so it is brutally unfunny. Belated apologies to Jesse Prinz, Josh Knobe, Susanna Siegel, Bill Lycan, and especially Fred Dretske. He appreciated the jokes in an earlier version and would be horrified at the thought of posting this without humor. He really was the best. May he rest in peace).
