19:00 [19:00] Richard Wrangham: In a world of kindness why so much violence? (ext online event
Webinar on human gentleness and violence - learning from our primate history. Our guest is Richard Wrangham, a distinguished primatologist, who has written a new book (2020) called the Goodness Paradox – How evolution has made us both more and less violent. The Zoom webinar is 7pm Wednesday 8th July. Wrangham is insightful, realistic and also hopeful. The good news is that humans have the capacity to be gentle and go beyond the story in our genes through culture and language to create new, hopeful stories. Humanism is an example. Our past does not have to be our future. If we are self-aware about our capacity for violence we can do something about it. We can also take action to reduce the violent behavior of others. Details of how to register are at the foot of this page on the Peace News website: https://peacenews.info/node/9631/richard-wrangham-goodness-paradox-%E2%80%93-how-evolution-made-us-both-more-and-less-violent .
