Why Inequality and Violence are Sometimes Good: The Evolution of Human Values

Are democracy and gender equality always good? Are violence and wealth inequality always bad? This presentation will dive into what drives changes in human values and what we as a society consider good or evil. Stanford professor of Classics Ian Morris presented during Classes Without Quizzes, part of Stanford’s Reunion Homecoming 2015 in partnership with the Humanities Center.
