FIRST RELEASE - LIVING LIKE CRAZY
"Written by one of the world’s leading psychologists on evolutionary approaches to mental health problems Living Like Crazy looks into the sources of our craziness, cruelty and mindless callousness rooted in evolved gene-based strategies for nepotism, tribalism, power-seeking, greed and self-absorption. He reveals how cultures can accentuate or dampen these dark-sides of our nature. Yet we have the potential to create a very different type of mind and social world. With insight into the nature of our minds we can purposefully cultivate our evolved capacities for compassion and altruism. There are many indicators that this is now happening. Based on previously unpublished writings, this is a wonderful book that brings our focus to both the dark sides of our nature, but also to how compassion is our path to alleviate our own, other people’s, and societies suffering."
