From TED Radio Hour, 7:06 pm on 16 July 2017

Wired for Altruism

Helping others feels good, but why do some go farther than others? This hour, TED speakers explore ideas about altruism — what motivates us to be altruistic, what limits us and do we ever go too far.

Abigail Marsh: Are We Wired To Be Altruistic?
Cheryl Steed: Can Altruism Be Learned?
Peter Singer: How Can We Be More Effective Altruists?
Larissa MacFarquhar: How Far Would You Go To Help Others?
