Dag O. Hessen
The compassionate human

The Compassionate Human is a book that will simply turn you into a better person. It is a biologist's optimistic defence for the good in all of us, in these modern times many find dark and disturbing.

When talking about human nature, most of us think of the ability to commit heinous and violent acts, to kill or be killed. In The Compassionate Human author and biologist Dag O. Hessen argues that these mechanisms might more often than not inspire and lead us to do good instead of evil.
