Why We Hate, Section II

ID : 1261   
« back to classes page

Throughout history, hate and conflict have been part of the human experience — from horrific extremes such as the Holocaust, to rising hate crimes in our own country. Whether we realize it or not, hate shapes our lives in myriad ways today, from mass destruction to playground bullying and malicious trolling on social media. We all have the human capacity to hate, but few of us understand what sparks it and transforms it into a destructive force. Why We Hate, a new, six-part documentary series explores this most primal and destructive of human emotions. Drawing on ground-breaking research in psychology, biology, neuroscience, cutting-edge journalism and deep historical investigation, it traces the scientific evolutionary basis of hatred and its powerful impact throughout human history. The series producers/directors are an A-List of filmmaking superstars, led by Steven Spielberg, Alex Gibney, Geeta Gandbhir and Sam Pollard. Each week, we’ll view a 40-minute episode, then discuss why we humans act out of hate — and our capacity to change our behavior and our world. Related articles will be provided by the coordinators.
