What is human nature? Are people innately selfish? What do crises like pandemics and disasters reveal about humanity and how we organize our societies? Rutger Bregman's 2019 bestseller Humankind: a Hopeful History, offers a view that most of us are "pretty decent" and uses history, philosophy and science to make this point.
What do Bregman's views offer to Christians and others for a new age of altruism and cooperation?
Join Andrea Rolls to explore Bregman's ideas over 4 weeks, Tuesdays, 10:30 to noon, starting September 7th.
"Reuter provides a new perspective on the past 200,000 years of human history, setting out to prove that we are hardwired for kindness. We are geared towards cooperation rather than competition and more inclined to trust rather than distrust one another"
