Paul Bloom

Jan 2014

Bloom, a psychologist and professor at Yale, poses the question “Can prejudice ever be a good thing?” In his talk he states that prejudice is often natural, rational and even moral. He argues that it is only be acknowledging this and then taking control of it when our bias goes wrong that we can use it to work to our benefit.

A growing body of evidence suggests that humans do have a rudimentary moral sense from the very start of life.
