What are the connections between culture and conscience?

View Question Background

Explore the relationship between culture and morality: How do humans discern between right and wrong? How do these decisions shape our communities and cultures? How does culture influence our values? Melvin Konner and Jonathan Haidt kick off the conversation, with new voices added weekly.

We had a wonderful event in New York City on October 26, 2015 with Jonathan Haidt, Melvin Konner, and Krista Tippett from the On Being radio show and podcast. Watch videos from this conversation on culture and conscience.

This series was made possible through the generous support of a grant from the John Templeton Foundation. The opinions expressed here are those of the Center's Scholars and Contributors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the John Templeton Foundation.
