Sebastian Junger, the author of Tribe, recently gave a talk at Columbia about the human need to gather, associate with others and form solid bonds with one another.
Let's continue this conversation to understand our need to belong and discuss solutions to adapt our nature to the demands of modern society.
Suggested questions and starting points
What in our psychology and physiology creates this need to belong?
What importance belonging or identifying to a group has in forming our own identity?
How do we balance the need for personal survival and the commitment to the group
Do we need a war or a disaster to become selfless and generous or can we create this state of mind on a regular basis?
How can we maintain strong bonds within a group/tribe while avoiding discrimination toward those who do not belong to our group or tribe?
In this 2-hour discussion, we will explore this topic, sharing points of views.
Looking forward to a rewarding conversation with you all. Bring guests and friends.
Great thanks to WeWork, who generously lend us the room for our informal gathering
