Forty years ago, psychologists Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky wrote a series of cut original studies to undo our assumptions on the decision-making processFrom their studies, have shown how the human mind has made a mistake, systematically, when they are forced to make decisions in situations of uncertainty.Their work has created the field of behavioral economics, revolutionized Big Data, studies, advances in evidence-based medicine, led to a new approach to government regulation, and made much of Michael Lewis’ own work possible.Kahneman and Tversky are more responsible than anyone else for the powerful movement of mistrust of the man of intuition and to report to algorithmsThe Cancellation of the Project is about a convincing analysis of the collaboration between the two men who have the dimensions of great literary figures.They became heroes of the university and on the battlefield-they both had careers in the Israeli army-and their research was deeply linked to their extraordinary life experiences.Amos Tversky was a brilliant, self-confidence warrior and extroverted, the center of deep attention in any room; Kahneman, to flee the Nazis, in his childhood, was an introvert whose quests of self-doubt was the nursery of his ideas.They have become one of the greatest partnerships in the history of science, working together so closely that they could not remember whose brain originated whose ideas, or who should apply for credit.They took the decision of the head of fatherhood from the first book they wrote, and then simply alternated between the two.This story about the functioning of the human mind is explored through the personalities of two fascinating individuals fundamentally different from each other that they seem unlikely that friends or colleaguesIn the process, they may very well have changed, for good, humanity from the point of view of its own spirit.
