Moralities of Everyday Life: A Free Online Course from Yale University

How can we explain kindness and cruelty? Where does our sense of right and wrong come from? Why do people so often disagree about moral issues? This course from Yale University, Moralities of Everyday Life, explores the psychological foundations of our moral lives. Taught by psychology & cognitive science professor Paul Bloom, the course focuses on the origins of morality, compassion, how culture/religion influence moral thought and moral action, and beyond. If you select the “Audit” option, you can take the course for free.

Moralities of Everyday Life will be added to our collection of Free Psychology Courses, a subset of our larger collection, 1,700 Free Online Courses from Top Universities.
