Description of Book:
We are social animals. Our very lives depend on our relationships with people. Knowing why people do what they do is the most important tool we can possess, without which our other talents can only take us so far. Drawing from the ideas and examples of Pericles, Queen Elizabeth I, Martin Luther King Jr, and many others, Greene teaches us how to detach ourselves from our own emotions and master self-control, how to develop the empathy that leads to insight, how to look behind people's masks, and how to resist conformity to develop your singular sense of purpose. Whether at work, in relationships, or in shaping the world around you, The Laws of Human Nature offers brilliant tactics for success, self-improvement, and self-defense.
Intent of Session:
Session 1 of 3. This text is broken down into 18 ‘laws’, each of which is a stand-alone chapter in the book. The applicability of each lesson, in terms of both self-reflection and interacting with others, is well-suited for deeper discussion. This is a transition from the philosophy sessions, which often involved ways to best deal with symptoms of human nature, to a discussion of the underlying being itself. To facilitate this, we will cover the book in thirds. The first section will cover the introduction and chapters 1 through 6. Topics this month include: empathy, character, seeing through facades, desire, and perspective. All are welcome in any session / no requirement to commit to all 3 sessions.
