Survival of the Friendliest: Evolving to Love Strangers

Dr. Hare will discuss his work on dog psychology and how a feared predator evolved into our best friend. This is compared to research on cooperative behavior in bonobos and chimpanzees that shows how friendliness wins over selfishness. In the process we will discover exactly what makes human love unique and how our unique emotional response to others makes us both the kindest and cruelest species on the planet. Part of the Saturday Morning Science Series
