  • Against Empathy: The Case for Rational Compassion | 12/14/16 (with live webcast) Paul Bloom We often think that empathy, our capacity to experience the suffering of others, is the ultimate source of goodness. Nothing could be farther from the truth, says Yale researcher Paul Bloom. Based on groundbreaking scientific findings, "Against Empathy" argues that far from helping us to improve the lives of others, empathy is a capricious and irrational emotion that appeals to our narrow prejudices. How does empathy lead to cruelty? What implications does this have for fighting climate change, going to war, or deciding who to imprison? (Public Affairs Program)
  • Women's Rights are Human Rights: Global Challenges to Reproductive Health | 12/14/16 (with live webcast) Terry McGovern, James Ketterer This event will explore the current status of reproductive rights around the world, noting advances that have been made and challenges that still exist. In addition, the speakers will discuss how women's health issues are affected by the ongoing conflicts in several regions, the refugee/migration crisis, the role of religion in politics, populist movements, and the persistence of authoritarian regimes. How might the new U.S. president address these issues? What policies might change? (Ethics Matter Series)
