Location: 
Event Type: 
Description: 

Join us for a replaying of a 2012 TED Talk from Jonathan Haidt, titled "Religion, evolution, and the ecstasy of self-transcendence."

Psychologist Jonathan Haidt asks a simple, but difficult question: why do we search for self-transcendence? Why do we attempt to lose ourselves? In a tour through the science of evolution by group selection, he proposes a provocative answer.

Lake Fellowship member, Chris Hall will introduce the video and offer some discussion points after the 18 minute video.
