HLS Library Book Talk | Too Much Information: Understanding What You Don’t Want to Know

Harvard Law School published this video item, entitled “HLS Library Book Talk | Too Much Information: Understanding What You Don’t Want to Know” – below is their description.

How much information is too much? Do we need to know how many calories are in the giant vat of popcorn that we bought on our way into the movie theater? Do we want to know if we are genetically predisposed to a certain disease? Can we do anything useful with next week’s weather forecast for Paris if we are not in Paris? In “Too Much Information,” Cass Sunstein examines the effects of information on our lives. This is the first in the Fall 2020 series of Book Talks, which have been organized and hosted each semester by the Harvard Law School Library since 2014.
