Join Dr. Alan Cowen, founder of Hume AI, Dr. Dacher Keltner, founding director of the Greater Good Science Center and Professor of Psychology at the University of California, Berkeley, and host Matt Forte as they discuss Myths About Emotion Science. Does the face ‘reveal our emotions’? What does science really say about how people express their feelings? We discuss the real complexity and nuance of facial and vocal expressions, and revisit what Darwin meant when he said that expressions are “purposeless.”
To kick us off, Hume AI CEO Dr. Alan Cowen discusses the meaning of expressions, and explains why the question of whether they "reveal our emotions" is a bit of a misdirection.
