Why do we experience a stronger emotional reaction to a single story of a person experiencing violence than we do to fifty million cases of violence? Come discover both the strengths and weaknesses in human morality, and what we can do to be more conscientious, moral beings. Please register to receive the meeting code. Each session includes time for questions. All sessions are free." Click here to register.
