After Hours: Power Paradox

Friday, May 19th
Main Reading Room - 7PM
Wine reception at 6:30pm for pre-registered guests.

Dacher Keltner of the Greater Good Science Center detailes the latest thinking about power--how it is more than class, money, or might, but instead how we make a difference in the world. He discusses how people rise in power through Machiavellian and virtuous strategies, and how humans evolved social processes to reign in abuses. He will also discuss the latest science on the abuses of power, including links of poor health to inequality and powerlessness.
