David Brooks on being socially oriented

Tapping into the findings of his latest book, The Social Animal: The Hidden Sources of Love, Character, and Achievement, NYTimes columnist David Brooks unpacks new insights into human nature from the cognitive sciences — insights with massive implications for economics and politics as well as our own self-knowledge. In a talk full of humor, he shows how you can’t hope to understand humans as separate individuals making choices based on their conscious awareness.

As you watch this, listen for the word interpenetration, a word used to describe the concept of the Trinity known as perichoresis, the mutual interpenetration and indwelling within the threefold nature of the Trinity, God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

What do you think about what he says and is there application for the understanding of human nature?
