The Origins of Right and Wrong: The Ecology of Morality

Speak Plainly

Nov 13 2023 • 1 hr 1 min

Welcome Back!

Todays episode explores where do our values come from? What informs what we believe to be right or wrong? What influences what we hold near and dear to our hearts?

There are some obvious answers like our family and our culture. But where did they get it from? There had to be an origin right? even if arbitrary as a beginning point there must be some hidden guiding factors that influence what we find important and therefore how we think we ought to behave in any given situation.

This episode was sparked by an interview I recently saw between two men that are often on different sides of things.  Dr. Robert Sapolsky and Dr. Jordan Peterson.

In this episode I explore:
Morality through the eyes of game theory,
Where morality comes from,
The neurobiology of behaviors,
How virtualization fosters psychopathy.
a lot about vampire bats
and even how one African Baboon troop got pre-diabetes.
