A Banal Discucssion of Good & Evil

“Religion as well as secular moral teaching accounts for very little of humankind’s ability to resist evil and do good.” –David R. Blumenthal


Here is a highlight of the book discussion we had on David Blumenthal’s book The Banality of Good and  Evil.  The video clip is about eight minutes long as we discuss how to create pro-social behavior in order to resist anti-social behavior.  Thank you to everyone who participated.

  1. I didn’t get to share this at our book discussion, Blumenthal’s work made me curious as to what to make of the similarities/differences between the Nuremberg Trials and S. Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
