The Art of Communication
Make sense of others: Human prosocial and antisocial behavior:

Compared to other apes, humans are profoundly prosocial creatures. We empathize with the feelings of others, provide resources and help, even for strangers, and understand the reasons why others think and feel as they do – except when we don’t. Humans also have a deep capacity for conflict, misunderstanding, and animosity. This talk will examine these two sides of human psychology, and especially how the characteristics of our jobs, technology, and other aspects of modern life make it increasingly difficult to express “the better angels of our nature.” We will review evidence from neuroscience, evolution, and social cognition that identifies the limiting factors to human pro-sociality, and what we can do in our everyday lives to better understand one another.
