Morality: A Natural History, 55-Plus Club of Princeton

Share:


Thursday October 22, 2020
10:00 AM

What is morality and what are its origins? How do we decide what is good and what is bad, what we should do and what we should not do? The search for answers to these questions has challenged mankind since the beginning of recorded history. Today we face an existential crisis where many of our fundamental ideas are being questioned. This talk, based on my recently published book, Morality: A Natural History, will offer a point of view that integrates ancient wisdom with contemporary science. I will outline efforts of thinkers and researchers in such diverse fields as philosophy, religion, child development, evolutionary biology, experimental psychology, and sociology that help to provide answers to these all-important questions.
