Goodness! Generosity and the Science of Altruism
A Series of Talks and Events at the Exploratorium for the Holidays
Wednesday, November 15, 2008 through Saturday, January 10, 2009

Holidays are a time to celebrate and encourage generosity. Yet helping others is a
behavior that exists throughout the year, and is deeply rooted in our psychology.
This holiday season, the Exploratorium looks at the social and biological aspects
of altruism with leading scientists, and offers fun and creative ways to give of
ourselves to others. Discuss the evolution of cooperation with anthropologist
Karthik Panchanathan and learn about decision-making and heroism with
renowned psychologist Dr. Philip Zimbardo. Explore generosity in children with
anthropologist Dr. Joan Silk, and join a workshop on raising kind kids with the
Executive Director of UC Berkeley's Greater Good Science Center, Dr. Christine
Carter. All events are included in the price of admission to the Exploratorium.
