Altruism scholar’s appearance at Sac State postponed

An appearance at Sacramento State by UC Irvine philosophy and political science professor Kristen Monroe planned for noon, Monday, Feb. 11 has been postponed indefinitely. Monroe’s talk may be rescheduled at a later date.

Monroe’s groundbreaking research into what makes some people act more altruistically than others is the basis for her books The Heart of Altruism: Perceptions of a Common Humanity, and the Hand of Compassion: Portraits of Moral Choice during the Holocaust.
