From Homo economicus to Homo duplex: Harnessing human nature to create flourishing teams, communities, and societies

Jesse’s academic work integrates principles and methods from neuroscience, evolution, and moral psychology to answer a fundamental question: how do human groups (from entire societies to communities to organizations, militaries, or sports teams) flourish?

His more recent work has focused on how to make people more creative, eat fewer calories, become more trusting (and trustworthy), become better at “reading” people, tolerate more physical pain, become more resilient, and turn their own genes on and off (and pass those turned on or off genes on to their children).
