The Elimination of Anger
Lecture no. 22 from the course: Understanding the Dark Side of Human Nature
Taught by Professor Daniel Breyer | 28 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses
If you could eliminate anger from your life, would you? Should you? Anger can be dangerous, but righteous anger can also be motivating. What if you could eliminate anger, but replace it with the motivation of compassion and loving-kindness? You’ll examine and broaden your thoughts on this powerful emotion by learning from the Buddhist philosopher Shantideva, the Stoic philosopher Seneca, and Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel, among others.
