Survival of the Friendliest: Evolving to Love Strangers

Brian Hare
Associate Professor of Evolutionary Anthropology
Center for Cognitive Neuroscience
Duke University

Hare will discuss his work on dog psychology and how a feared predator evolved into our best friend. This is compared to research on cooperative behavior in bonobos and chimpanzees that shows how friendliness wins over selfishness. In the process we will discover exactly what makes human love unique and how our unique emotional response to others makes us both the kindest and cruelest species on the planet.
