Click here to listen to the podcast

Welcome to HumanLab: The Science Between Us, with Amy Alkon interviewing the luminaries of behavioral science. On this show, social psychologist Dr. Barry Schwartz lays out why our emotions, trained and modulated, are the key to developing wisdom and behaving wisely.

And, contrary to conventional "wisdom" that emotions should be kept out of business or professional decisions, Schwartz lays out why that's not the case and why "practical wisdom" is key to both personal and relationship happiness.

His compelling book (complete with some moving stories) is "Practical Wisdom: The Right Way to Do the Right Thing." His co-author is poly-sci prof Dr. Kenneth Sharpe.
