The Power of Ideals

by- William Damon and Anne Colby


The Power of Ideals (2016) sheds light on the dubious science underlying the new psychological thinking that argues individuals are innately evil beings. These slates provide a more in-depth, clearer look into the essence of human morality and demonstrate how our behaviors are impacted by intrinsic human attributes such as empathy, humility, and honesty, as demonstrated by the accomplishments of society's moral leaders.

"William Damon is a Stanford University professor of education and a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution on War, Revolution, and Peace.
