Course Description

Did you ever wonder why someone with impeccable values will choose to behave in totally unacceptable ways? Have you been puzzled by some of the outrageous, inexcusable actions of some well-known politicians and other prominent members of society who have risked their careers and reputations by engaging in shameful risky behaviors? Partially based on the book Out of Character by two social psychologists, this lecture will describe how often circumstances, rather than character, unwittingly shape our choices, enabling even the most saintly of us to behave badly.
