Secret Science Club presents Social Psychologist Daniel Yudkin on Moral Dilemmas

We’ve all been there. You say or do something, maybe it’s telling a “little” lie that ends up backfiring, or perhaps you blow your stack at someone else for their bad behavior. It leaves you wondering: Was I in the wrong? Or was it their fault?

Fortunately, there’s a website for vetting such moral dilemmas, the Reddit forum, titled: “Am I the Asshole?” With thousands of posts and millions of comments, “Am I the Asshole?” is a clearinghouse for ethical quandaries about honesty, privacy, fairness, kindness, loyalty, and decency.

For social psychologist Daniel Yudkin, “Am I the Asshole” has proved to be a goldmine (and vast database) for studying the ways people think about and experience morality in their everyday lives.

At the next Secret Science Club, Dr. Yudkin shares his insights from his research on the moral codes that we impose on ourselves and each other—and the ways we adapt, bend, and break those rules as we navigate relationships & social situations in our daily lives.

BEFORE & AFTER

- Try our well-mannered cocktail of the night, the “Mea Culpa”

- Groove to morally ambiguous and nonjudgmental tunes

- Stick around for the scintillating Q&A

DANIEL YUDKIN is a social psychologist who studies how people decide between right and wrong, and how these decisions impact relationships, organizations, and society. He is a postdoctoral fellow in the psychology department and Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. He is also a senior advisor at More in Common. a nonprofit that uses insights from social science to understand and bridge political divides. His research has been featured in the New Yorker, Atlantic, New York Times, Washington Post and on CNN, NPR, and the BBC World News, and his essays have appeared in the Guardian, New York Times, and Scientific American.
