Being Human: Individual + Society & Morals + Culture -

Being Human: Individual + Society & Morals + Culture from Being Human on


As we use the tools of science to explore the nature of humanity, we are learning more and more about how our brains function and what motivates our behavior, built-in biases and blind spots.

These fresh insights are interesting scientifically, but they also evoke significant questions about our lived experience. These perspectives challenge our basic assumptions of who we are, both as individuals and as a society.

Great presentations, especially noted psychologist Paul Ekman when he argues that humans are biased to see threats where they may not exist and have evolved to respond automatically to emotions without awareness... !!!  Monte
