Thee or Me? Part 1: Morality & The Prisoner’s Dilemma

In this first of 2 podcasts I explore why we are sometimes selfish and at other times altruistic.  The answer is a complex mix of nature and nurture: personality and circumstance.  I discuss how, on average, you can encourage altruistic behaviour by approaching people with an assumption of their trustworthiness and moral good intent.  But we should not be naive and should protect outselves fron bad social players.
