Why Some People Are More Altruistic Than Others

Talks/Lectures

Why do some people do selfless things, helping others even at risk to their own well-being, such as in emergency situations on I-5 or donating a kidney to a complete stranger? At the other extreme, why are psychopaths the way they are? Are their brains just different? Two fascinating works by Abigail Marsh, a Professor of Psychology at Georgetown University, are presented by her mother, Tahoma UU member, Margot Marsh. Besides a TED Talk, Margot dives into her daughter's groundbreaking book, The Fear Factor: How One Emotion Connects Altruists, Psychopaths, and Everyone In-Between. Part of the "SpiritUUality Cafe" series at Tahoma UU Congregation.
