Description:

One Day University presents a series of video lectures recorded in real-time from some of the top minds in the United States. Given by award-winning professors and experts in their field, these recorded lectures dive deep into the worlds of religion, government, literature, and social justice.Why do we prefer original paintings to forgeries? Why does wine taste better when we think it's expensive? And why do people pay millions of dollars for celebrity memorabilia? It turns out that there is a psychological theory that explains all of these quirks of pleasure, and it's one that can help us improve our lives. In this fascinating, wide-ranging, and often very funny class, Dr. Bloom talks about the pleasure (and pain) of raising children; he explores the mysterious appeal of extremist groups like ISIS; and he explains why we aren't any happier now than we were in the 1950s. This video lecture is an engaging introduction to the new science of pleasure.
