What Do We Mean by the “Dark Side”?
Lecture no. 1 from the course: Understanding the Dark Side of Human Nature
Taught by Professor Daniel Breyer | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses
Most of us think of ourselves as good people—reserving the concept of the “dark side” only for science fiction or psychopaths. But that’s not really the truth of human nature. We’ll begin to explore how the dark side relates both to our tendencies toward immorality and evil and to some of the most problematic aspects of the human condition.
