By Dacher Keltner

“A landmark publication within the technological know-how of feelings and its implications for ethics and human universals.”—Library Journal, starred review

In this startling research of human emotion, Dacher Keltner investigates an unanswered query of human evolution: If people are hardwired to guide lives which are “nasty, brutish, and short,” why have we developed with optimistic feelings like gratitude, entertainment, awe, and compassion that advertise moral motion and cooperative societies? Illustrated with greater than fifty images of human feelings, Born to Be Good takes us on a trip via clinical discovery, own narrative, and japanese philosophy. confident feelings, Keltner reveals, lie on the center of human nature and form our daily behavior—and they only could be the key to realizing how we will be able to reside our lives larger. a few photographs during this booklet will not be displayed because of permissions issues.
