Book Talk: Heeding the Voice of Conscience with Eyal Press
What impels ordinary people to defy authority and convention, sacrificing safety for the fierceness of their convictions? In his new book, Beautiful Souls, journalist Eyal Press (author of Absolute Convictions) weaves dramatic stories and groundbreaking research by psychologists and neuroscientists. He examines the choices and dilemmas we face when our principles collide with the loyalties we harbor and the duties we are expected to fulfill. Talk followed by signing.

BEAUTIFUL SOULS: Saying No, Breaking Ranks, and Heeding the Voice of Conscience in Dark Times. A moving and revelatory exploration of what animates individual acts of courage and conscience in dangerous circumstances.

Fifty years after Hannah Arendt examined the dynamics of conformity in her seminal account of the Eichmann trial, Beautiful Souls explores the flipside of the banality of evil, mapping out what impels ordinary people to defy the sway of authority and convention. Through the dramatic stories of unlikely resisters who feel the flicker of conscience when trust into morally compromising situations, Eyal Press shows that the boldest acts of dissent are often carried out not by radicals seeking to overthrow the system, but by true believers who cling with unusual fierceness to their convictions.
