From examining how we negotiate moral concerns to exploring the determinants of power and status, Dacher Keltner looks at the social practices by which we navigate the world. In this talk Dr. Keltner will detail the latest thinking on how we have evolved to be kind. This thinking will begin with Darwin, covering the latest neuroscience of the pleasures of giving, and detail how contagious kindness is. He will then devote the second half of the talk to concrete, science tested practices by which we can move towards a kinder society.
