Paul Bloom is an author and a Professor of Psychology at Yale.

Why is suffering a cause of pleasure for some people? What do BDSM, being robbed, extreme sports and meditation have in common? How does pleasure work? Why is empathy bad and what is the case for rational compassion? Why do we love people who have died?

One of my favourite conversations this year, do not miss this.
