Humanity has benefited enormously from scientific advances – science has made us physically better. Has science also made us better morally? We will examine this question by discussing Michael Shermer’s 2015 book, “The Moral Arc: How Science Makes Us Better People”. The semester’s goal will be to increase our understanding of the ability of scientific thinking to make a better and more just world.

I am a faculty member in the Biological Research Area of Psychology, who studies animal behavior. I am increasingly interested in finding ways of increasing scientific understanding more broadly in the community.
