We are players in a game we don’t understand. Most of our own thinking is below awareness. Fifty years ago,people may have assumed we are captains of our own ships,but, in fact, our behavior is often aroused by context in ways we can’t see. Our biases frequently cause us to want the wrong things. Our perceptions and memories are slippery, especially about our own mental states. Our free will is bounded. We have much less control over ourselves than we thought.”
