Description - The Brighter Side Of Human Nature by Alfie Kohn

Drawing from hundreds of studies in half a dozen fields, The Brighter Side of Human Nature makes a powerful case that caring and generosity are just as natural as selfishness and aggression. This lively refutation of cynical assumptions about our species considers the nature of empathy and the causes of war, why we (incorrectly) explain all behaviour in terms of self-interest, and how we can teach children to care.
