Listen to This

Mike McCullough, a professor of psychology at the University of Miami and the author of Beyond Revenge, will be hitting the airwaves on "Speaking of Faith" with Krista Tippett to talk about "Getting Revenge and Forgiveness." During the radio program, McCullough will describe the science that explains the purpose that revenge came to have in human life and how taking that seriously could help us react more effectively to crises like school shootings, terrorism, and partisan divides. But he'll also stress that science is revealing humans to be more instinctively equipped for forgiveness than we tend to believe. The show will explore how we can calm the revenge instinct in ourselves and others, and embolden this forgiveness intuition.
The program airs tomorrow through next Wednesday on public radio stations nationwide.
