There’s Still A Tribe. Just A Very, Very Big One.

When we examine the moral judgments of others, it's tempting to think that we live in different worlds, but there's only one. The challenge today is that our social contexts are far more global and complicated, so can our sense of tribal morality evolve to encompass people outside of our tribe?

Studying moral psychology allows us access to others' perspectives, to the fact that others could have different values, and so just knowing that there is this complex space of moral psychology could help us to understand where other people are coming from.

Steadfast Morals, Flashes And Compasses

What makes morality unique is that a lot of times, people experience a moral judgment as a flash of intuition or feeling, good or bad. But underneath that feeling is complex moral psychological structure.

Context Magnetizes The Morality Needle

Moral cognition depends hugely on context, so if someone tells us about a person who helped a stranger, we would say they're much better than the person who helped their brother. But if that someone told us about a person who helped the stranger instead of their brother, we wouldn't thin...

Morality has evolved with our species because of humans' practical and psychological need for social bonds, but even early human societies began codifying a morality into laws and norms that were meant to be applied universally.

The evolutionary origin of morality is coordination or...

We Often Move The Needle Too

We may say adultery is wrong, but if it's a friend who we know well, who had a troubled marriage, maybe we're more forgiving. We say stealing is wrong, but we might be more understanding of our favorite politician when they're caught lining their pockets. We do this all the time....

So, Moral Laws Treat Different Bonds Differently

Back in evolutionary time, we didn't interact with others across the world; only with the people in our family, the people that we could see. It's because of that that we have developed these sorts of biases that have to do with social distance: we think that the harm that is being done u...

Let’s Find The Commonality And Fix Our Moral Compass

We're all connected in some way. Between any two people in the world, there's some common value or experience. Finding that commonality could be the best path towards a more morally-consistent world.

Dream On

So I get why we fear dreaming. It’s hard for us to get our hopes up that things will go the way we want them to. Yet and still, we need to put this worry as far away from our psyches as possible. You might call it madness, but I call it necessary.

Here’s the thing. Life can absolutely be a ...

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
