What motivates emotion? What are the effects of affect?

February 3, 2015, 19:30 lecture

On February 3rd, the Digital October Center will play host to a Popular Lectorium lecture during which psychologist Sergey Mats will talk about why people need their emotions and worries.

Are strong and vivid emotions helpful or harmful? How are the emotions that we experience connected with the emotions that we express? How do emotional stress and compassion shape our moral norms? Are people capable of understanding the emotions and experiences of animals? Is it possible to learn how to control yourself to such an extent that it would be impossible to tell when you were lying and when you were telling the truth? How can you stop overreacting to the little things and learn to experience true happiness?

The speaker at this lecture will be Sergey Mats, psychologist and docent of the L.S. Vygotsky Institute of the Russian State University for the Humanities.

This is a ticketed event. The price of admission is 350 rubles. Tickets will be available for purchase directly before the lecture.
