The Science of Good and Evil, psychologist and science historian Michael Shermer explores how humans evolved from social primates into moral primates, how and why morality motivates the human animal, and how the foundation of moral principles can be built upon empirical evidence. Along the way he explains the implications of scientific findings for fate and free will, the existence of pure good and pure evil, and the development of early moral sentiments among the first humans. As he closes the divide between science and morality, Shermer draws on stories from the Yanamam’, infamously known as the “fierce people” of the tropical rain forest, to the Stanford studies on jailers’ behavior in prisons.

The Science of Good and Evil is ultimately a profound look at the moral animal, belief, and the scientific pursuit of truth.
