Is altruism always biological? Or can biological systems for altruism be co-opted to serve more humanistic purposes? How does this impact our perspectives on culture, religion, and Jesus Christ?
Jeffrey Schloss, distinguished professor of biology and natural and behavioral sciences at Westmont and director of the Center for Faith, Ethics, & Life Sciences, explains how he sees altruism fitting into the bigger picture. This discussion was held at The Veritas Forum at Washington University, 2010, featuring Jeffrey Schloss, Robert Sussman, and S. Joshua Swamidass.
