Why do we feel empathy for the suffering of others? What factors shape our views on dogs? What do psychopaths dream of? These seemingly random questions are brought together in a harmonious evening of curiosity and answered by three top scientists from the University of Liverpool. We will take you on a journey through the science of how we judge dogs, how we empathise with others and how the “dark” personality traits influence our daily activity patterns. The evening will give you a chance to meet our experts and gently probe them, drink, laugh and learn!
