Moral Tribes: A groundbreaking look at how we might be able to get along

Originally aired: Friday, November 8, 2013

Our brains were designed for tribal life, for getting along with a select group of others (Us) and for fighting off everyone else (Them). But modern times have forced the world's tribes into a shared space, resulting in epic clashes of values along with unprecedented opportunities. We fight over everything from tax codes to gay marriage to global warming, and we wonder where, if at all, we can find our common ground. Harvard Professor Joshua Greene discusses his new book Moral Tribes, which reveals the underlying causes of modern conflict and lights the way forward. The great question of Moral Tribes is this: How can we get along with Them when what they want feels so wrong to Us?
