Even before the coronavirus crisis, humans had been drifting toward individualism and apart from one another, creating an increasingly human-free world. How has this trend toward disengagement with humanity influenced the way we're responding to COVID-19, and how could the pandemic either exacerbate or ameliorate our disengagement with one another?

Social psychologist and Northwestern Kellogg School of Management professor Dr. Adam Waytz explores these questions and more, drawing on his new book, The Power of Human: How Our Shared Humanity Can Help Us Create a Better World.  

An installment of Northwestern Buffett Institute for Global Affairs "Confronting COVID-19: Global Implications and Futures" webinar series.
