Why do we cry during movies when we know they aren’t real? Why do some people believe the most outrageous conspiracy theories? Why do we find gossip or sports so compelling? Tonight on Inquiry we talk with JIM DAVIES, Professor at the Institute of Cognitive Science of Carelton University and the Director of the Science of Imagination Laboratory. He will discuss his new book which answers these questions and many others: RIVETED: THE SCIENCE OF WHY JOKES MAKE US LAUGH, MOVIES MAKE US CRY, AND RELIGION MAKES US FEEL ONE WITH THE UNIVERSE.
