Are We Hardwired to be Moral?

"Esteemed primatologist Frans de Waal (Our Inner Ape, Chimpanzee Politics) shares highlights from pioneering research showing that our moral nature stems from our primate social emotions, evidenced by chimpanzees who soothe distressed neighbors and bonobos who offer companions their own food. Frans de Waal has been named among Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People. His new book is The Bonobo and the Atheist: In Search of Humanism Among the Primates."

All of my tickets are taken unless there are cancellations.  Unless I sent you an e-mail, telling you  that I am holding a ticket for you, please contact the Jewish Community Center directly.  I think there are still some tickets available.

    Very interesting lecture. Frans de Waal was easy to understand, explained things well and was often humorous.

    i've always enjoyed zoology so hearing what he said was good. i hope they sold all the copies of his books. i think i understand where he's coming from as far as religion.

    I have to work, and I didn't get an email about holding a ticket for me, so I may not have a ticket.

    How do I get a ticket for this ? I can't find any online way to purchase tickets at JCC.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
