Join Dacher Keltner, co-director of Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center, for some insights into our very human drive to be in command of our world. In this talk he’ll share some research about how we get power, how it turns us into fools, and why we need to work together to address inequality and powerlessness.
Dacher Keltner received his B.A. from UC Santa Barbara and Ph.D. from Stanford. He studies the evolution of human emotion and power, class, and inequality. His five books include The Power Paradox (just published) and Born to Be Good: The Science of a Meaningful Life, and he has participated on two scientific panels with the Dalai Lama.
