Robert Sapolsky: The Biology of Good and Evil

March 9, 2023 @ 7:30 pm

Robert Sapolsky has spent 30 years as a primatologist studying baboons in the wild, as well as being a MacArthur “Genius” Fellow and professor of biology and neurology at Stanford University. He uses his unique perspective, insight and wit to examine human behavior. ”Why are we the most aggressive and also the most altruistic of all species?” He explores the origin of feelings such as love, empathy, and the desire for justice. How do our genetic inheritance and cultural experiences provide the context for our behavior? He will address these issues using concepts from his magisterial book, “Behave: The Biology of Humans at Our Best and Worst.”
