Summary
The human moral sense is fascinating. Putting aside the intriguing case of psychopaths, every normal adult is appalled by acts of cruelty. Every normal adult is also uplifted by acts of kindness, such as the heroes who jump onto subway tracks to rescue fallen strangers from oncoming trains. There is a universal urge to help those in need and to punish wrongdoers; we feel pride when we do the right thing and guilt when we don't. Other moral feelings and impulses aren't so absolute. So where does our morality come from? How much of it is learned? Why are some moral judgements universal and others violently conflicting? In 'Just Babies', renowned psychologist Paul Bloom reveals how humans are born with a hard-wired morality
