Title

Altruism, Parochialism, and War: Rambo Meets Mother Teresa

Subject

Lecture 2, Ulam Lectures series, Sante Fe Institute (2008).

Description

Samuel Bowles, Professor, Santa Fe Institute
September 17, 2008

Bowles uses computer simulations to generate artificial histories of humanity over tens of thousands of years, tracing alternative trajectories that could explain how we got to be both nasty and nice. The disquieting conclusion will be that war and hostility toward outsiders may have been midwives of our more admirable moral predispositions.
