cooperation and evolution

"The most powerful force ever known on this planet is human cooperation — a force for construction and destruction.” 
~ Jonathan Haidt

Psychologist Jonathan Haidt asks a simple, but difficult question: why do we search for self-transcendence? Why do we attempt to lose ourselves?

Haidt is the author of The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion and the super awesome book, The Happiness Hypothesis.
