Brain Cafe: Morality: A Person in a World of People

July 15, 2014 6:00 PM

Feed your brain this summer with The Gershman Y! To participate, watch online lectures from lauded academics on your own time, then join us at The Good Karma Café (331 S 22nd St, Philadelphia) for a lively discussion! Come prepared to share your thoughts and expand your mind!

In the second installment of the series, we discuss Yale Professor Paul Bloom’s  lecture, “Morality: A Person in a World of People.” Bloom discusses some of the most central questions about human morality–which emotions are “moral” and why did these moral feelings evolve? What factors guide our moral judgements?
