ReasonNYC – How Sex Makes Us Moral, featuring Paul Zak

  • May 9, 2012
    6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Have you ever wondered why some people give freely while others are cold hearted? Why some people cheat and steal while others you can trust with your life? Why some husbands are more faithful than others—and why women tend to be more generous than men? Could the key to moral behavior lie with a single molecule?

Well, on May 9th we will be hearing from the man who discovered the answers, Dr. Paul Zak. Matt Ridley described his research as, “One of the most revealing experiments in the history of economics.” And now he’s written a great book about it.

Please join Reason as we celebrate the launch of The Moral Molecule and discuss Dr. Zak’s research with him. You’ll also be able to buy a copy of the book the day before it appears in bookshops – and have it signed by the author. He might even give you a personal demonstration of why he’s known as Dr. Love.
