Shared reflection about the article
Jeffrey Kluger’s article is very interesting he focuses on human being behavior. He states, that humans have a developed sense of morality which is primarily taught from childhood. Our highly developed sense of morality separates us from animals, I highly agree with it because we can distinguish what is right and wrong, what is good and bad, what is moral and immoral. Morality might be a hard concept to grasp, but we acquire it fast. All in all, Kluger talks about, how morality is taught from childhood and a person’s decision to do something bad or good is based on empathy.
