    Multi-Player Electoral Engineering and COVID-19 in the Polish Presidential Elections in 2020.Jarosław Flis & Marek Kaminski - 2022 - Mind and Society 21 (1):1-8.
    The uniqueness of Poland’s experience with the 2020 coronavirus lays in the interplay of two factors: the decisive governmental response to the pandemic, and the overlap of the pandemic with the country’s presidential election scheduled on May 10, 2020. The government’s fast reaction, combined with the citizens’ discipline, resulted in the suppression of the virus’s spread. The ratings of the current President Duda skyrocketed well above 50% needed for re-election in the first round. However, the expectation was that they would (...)

    Do Self-Talk Phrases Affect Behavior in Ultimatum Games?Vincenz Frey, Hannah N. M. De Mulder, Marlijn ter Bekke, Marijn E. Struiksma, Jos J. A. van Berkum & Vincent Buskens - 2022 - Mind and Society 21 (1):89-119.
    The current study investigates whether self-talk phrases can influence behavior in Ultimatum Games. In our three self-talk treatments, participants were instructed to tell themselves to keep their own interests in mind, to also think of the other person, or to take some time to contemplate their decision. We investigate how such so-called experimenter-determined strategic self-talk phrases affect behavior and emotions in comparison to a control treatment without instructed self-talk. The results demonstrate that other-focused self-talk can nudge proposers towards fair behavior, (...)

    Animal Vs. Human Rationality-Cum-Conceptuality: A Philosophical Perspective on Developmental Psychology.Yakir Levin & Itzhak Aharon - 2022 - Mind and Society 21 (1):63-88.
    In this paper, we first extract from Susan Carey’s seminal account of the origin of concepts a notion of rationality, which is applicable to human infants and non-human animals; significantly different from the notions of rationality prevalent in behavioral ecology and yet, like these notions, amenable to empirical testing; conceptually more fundamental than the latter notions. Relatedly, this notion underlies a proto-conceptuality ascribable, by a key component of Carey’s account, to human infants and non-human animals. Based on a Kantian-inspired analysis (...)

    Addressing Threats Like Covid: Why We Will Tend to Over-React and How We Can Do Better.Mark Pingle - 2022 - Mind and Society 21 (1):9-23.
    A number of behavioral economic insights suggest we will tend to overreact, individually and collectively, to a new, serious, but low probability health threat, like Covid 19. To respond more effectively to such threats, we should recognize why we will tend to overreact and prepare in advance not to do so. We also should recognize the usefulness in giving lower level governments, non-profits, and less formal communities some ability to respond, rather than presuming we should address a significant threat like (...)
