[Psychology of] [memory and perception] - this session would run several classic psychological experiments which are revealing in terms of the nature of knowledge. Rather than "teaching" the experiments, the session would provide an active knowledge through participation. Participants would be shown how their own memories and perceptions are affected by their perspective and assumptions. Bartlett's "War of the Ghosts" experiment, Carmichael's memory/perception study and if practical Asch's conformity study (see links or google them for details) might be useful tools. Adopted by Andy R unless someone else volunteers
