7:00 PM - 9:00 PM - Whitsett Room, Fourth Floor, Sierra Hall 451
The College of Social and Behavioral Sciences presents
A Richard W. Smith Lecture in Cultural Studies featuring:
Pal Zak on Recent Research on Brain Chemistry: A Revolution in the Sciences of Good and Evil
Why do human beings engage in courageous acts of compassion but also perpetrate violence? Could the apparent flip-flopping morality of our species have a hidden explanation?
Paul Zak's new book The Moral Molecule: The Source of Love and Prosperity is a first-hand account of the discovery of a molecule that makes us moral. It reveals that compassion is part of our human nature, why loneliness can kill you, and why your neighbor may be a psychopath.
From the laboratory to the jungles of Papua New Guinea, Paul Zak takes you on an amazing journey that reveals what it means to be human.
This event is scheduled for Tuesday, November 13th, at 7:00 p.m. in the Whitsett Room, Sierra Hall 451. Reservations are requested.
