Event Details

What does it mean to call someone evil? Does "evil", as we think of it, even truly exist? 

On Thursday, February 21st, join Dr. Julia Shaw (The Memory Illusion) in conversation about her new book Evil: The Science Behind Humanity's Dark Side with Misha Glouberman (How to Talk to People About Things). The two will re-examine concepts surrounding how we talk about evil, look at the ways our ideas of evil are based on misinformation and confusion, and discuss the serious harm that this can do in the world. Are we able to do away with the label of "evil" altogether? And how might we approach the people and things we call evil with greater curiosity and even empathy?

Dr. Julia Shaw is a criminal  scientist and internationally bestselling author of The Memory Illusion. Dr. Shaw’s work spans law, false memories, and criminal psychology. In addition to her academic work, she co-founded Spot, an app that helps employees report workplace harassment and discrimination, and empowers organizations to become more inclusive and respectful.

This event is part of the How to Talk to People About Things Conversation Series, where Misha Glouberman invites authors and thought leaders to discuss ideas that help people become better at communication, collaboration, and understanding other people’s points of view.
