Self-Transcendence And Cooperation

Jonathan Haidt presents a TED talk on self-transcendence and cooperation.



Comment:

Haidt is a social psychologist and an atheist.  However, unlike many atheists, he sees a great deal of good in the structure of religion and how it motivates people to do good.

This blogger agrees with one commenter on this video, who is more cautious about promoting the value of religion:
"Yes, we are (very likely) evolved to be religious. We are also evolved to desire sugar beyond the level of obesity." (dumpmist)
