A great lecture from R.Sapolsky, neurobiologist at Standford University about human behavior and how important it is 1) to take in account a wide variety of environmental factors (see the screenshot of Sapolsky’s PowerPoint above) and 2) no behavior is frozen in time and that every individual has the ability to change.
Summarizing the content of his new book Behave, Sapolsky presents in a witty and interesting way the different scientific approaches regarding our behavior and how important it is to be open-minded and have a broader, integrated view of human behavior. He concludes reminding us that nothing is predetermined and that each of us has the ability to change.
Life is not synonymous with fate: it is a process in motion as long as we are alive.
