Robert Trivers, Ph.D., presents Evolutionary Psychology & Ethics

In this two-part session Dr. Trivers will first lay out the theoretical map for ethical behavior, reciprocal altruism, cooperation and deception in human relationships. In part two he will explain the co-evolutionary struggle between deceiver and the deceived, the intrinsic bias in favor of the deceiver, and the evolution of self-deception to facilitate the efficacy of deceptive behavior. Active discussion and a Q&A section for attendees is included in both parts.
