The Science of Political Orientation
Thursday, October 31, 2013 at 12:00pm to 1:30pm
The Berkley Center for Religion, Peace & World Affairs 3307 M St. NW, Suite #200, Washington, DC 20007
Our Political Nature, a new book from Avi Tuschman, explores the science underlying political orientation. The book examines how political views arise from three clusters of measurable personality traits, which entail opposing attitudes toward tribalism, inequality, and differing perceptions of human nature. This groundbreaking work is based on new interdisciplinary insights from the fields of primatology, genetics, neuroscience, and anthropology.
Avi Tuschman will discuss the book and his latest research. The Berkley Center's Tom Banchoff will moderate.
