Time Out says

Explore humanity’s darker side in this investigation into inexcusable behaviour

Evil comes in shades of grey. At least, that’s the premise of this talk about malicious actions or those considered ‘evil’.

Presented by UNSW as part of Sydney Science Festival, Rethinking Evil will unpack Julia Shaw’s book, Making Evil: The Science Behind Humanity's Dark Side, in a discussion with the author alongside philosopher Luke Russell, psychopathy expert Georgie Fleming, and host for the evening, science communicator Natasha Mitchell. 

The work explores ideas like neurological evidence of evil, and psychological signifiers of everything from inappropriate workplace behaviour to murderous intentions. The talk will dig into these ideas and the prospect of understanding, if not eradicating evil actions. Here’s hoping. 

This is a free talk, but you'll want to register your interest for seating.
