Born to Be Good: The Science of a Meaningful Life

By Dacher Keltner

"Born to Be Good" is a landmark book in the science of emotions and its implications for ethics and human universals.

Dacher Keltner investigates how humans were born to be good by utilising an old mystery of human evolution: why we have evolved positive emotions like gratitude, amusement, kindness and compassion that promote ethical action and are the fabric of cooperative societies.

"Born to Be Good" is a profound study of how emotion is the key to living the good life and how the path to happiness goes through human emotions that connect people to one another.
