A Bit of OptimismA Bit of Optimism

A Theory of Everyone with behavioral researcher Dr. Michael Muthukrishna

View descriptionShare

What makes humanity unique?

Dr. Michael Muthukrishna is fascinated by why our species behaves the way it does. In his book, A Theory of Everyone, Michael seeks to answer some of the deepest questions humans have about ourselves and how our cultures came to be. Why do humans create culture? What do all our societies have in common? And how can this knowledge help us build a better future?

This...is A Bit of Optimism.

In our conversation, Michael references a paper published in Science titled "The Church, intensive kinship, and global psychological variation." You can read it here.
