It might seem like humans are predisposed towards violence and aggression. But is the truth more complicated than that? And what role does compassion and peace play in our origins? In this video, Marc Kissel, Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Appalachian State University, shares the research he and his colleagues have done to study these questions and help to better understand the roles of compassion and of violence in the past.
Moderator: Briana Pobiner, paleoanthropologist and educator at Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History.
