Author Michael E. McCullough in Conversation with Barbara Bradley Hagerty

The Harvard Club, New York City | December 16, 2008

Why is revenge such a pervasive and destructive problem? Why is forgiveness so difficult? In Beyond Revenge, Michael E. McCullough argues that the key to creating a more forgiving world is to understand both the evolutionary forces that gave rise to these intimately human instincts and the social forces that activate them in our minds today. Drawing on the latest breakthroughs in the social and biological sciences, McCullough offers practical and often surprising advice for how individuals, social groups, and even nations might move beyond our deep penchant for revenge.
