How Awe Shapes Our Thinking
Published December 06, 2019
At their core, awe and wonder appear to be powerful emotions that can inform and shape our attitudes toward ourselves and others, especially in relation to the larger meaning and purpose of our lives. What are the psychological underpinnings of these emotions? And how do they influence our thinking around everything from science to morality?
In this video from the second event in our three-part series, "The Power of Wonder: Modern Marvels in the Age of Science," professor of religious studies and ethicist Lisa Sideris joins psychologists Jennifer Stellar and Piercarlo Valdesolo to explore the ways in which awe shapes our thinking about the world around us. The discussion was moderated by Steve Paulson.
