I contributed to an essay on heroism with Zeno Franco, Phil Zimbardo, Dennis Pamlin, and Kathy Blau this month. It was read out at a conference in China on September 23rd. The paper was based on the “Banality of Heroism” article in Greater Good magazine that I talked about earlier in the year. The focus has moved to heroism in the modern world and the future, especially in relation to China.
You can download the paper in pdf format from my website. I’d love to hear what you think in the comments here.
