Carol Tavris will be visiting Ashland as the spring featured speaker in our Thomas Jefferson Lecture Series. She wrote this book in 2007. Full title: Mistakes were made (but not by me): Why we justify foolish beliefs, bad decisions, and hurtful acts. She addresses cognitive dissonance and why it is not in itself sufficient to challenge pre-set interpretations already inside our minds.
