See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

Eating these foods is associated with greater optimism, happiness, higher self-esteem and better relationships.

Consuming fruit and vegetables could be just as good for your mental wellbeing as it is for your physical health, a new study finds.

The study of 14,000 people in the UK found that the more fruit and vegetables they consumed, the higher their mental wellbeing (Stranges et al., 2014).

Mental wellbeing is about more than just not being depressed: it means positively feeling good.

Friends or foes: Is empathy necessary for moral behavior?

See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond
Abstract:In the past decade, a flurry of empirical and theoretical research on morality and empathy has taken place, andinterest and usage in the media and the public arena have increased. At times, in both popular culture and academia,morality and empathy are used interchangeably, and quite often the latter is considered to play a foundational role forthe former. In this article, we argue that although there is a relationship between morality and empathy, it is not asstraightforward as apparent at first glance. Moreover, it is critical to distinguish among the different facets of empathy(emotional sharing, empathic concern, and perspective taking), as each uniquely influences moral cognition andpredicts differential outcomes in moral behavior. Empirical evidence and theories from evolutionary biology as wellas developmental, behavioral, and affective and social neuroscience are comprehensively integrated in support of thisargument. The wealth of findings illustrates a complex and equivocal relationship between morality and empathy. Thekey to understanding such relations is to be more precise on the concepts being used and, perhaps, abandoning themuddy concept of empathy
