What makes a good person?
This is one of the questions that Adam Schroeder and Naresh Vissa try to answer today with Dr. Dilip Jeste.
Dr. Jeste has spent his recent time exploring whether there's a relationship between wisdom and loneliness, what wisdom actually means, and what it is about the core of people that makes them "good" or "bad".
Dilip is Senior Associate Dean for Healthy Aging and Senior Care, Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry and Neurosciences, Estelle and Edgar Levi Memorial Chair in Aging, Director of the Sam and Rose Stein Institute for Research on Aging, and Co-Director IBM-UCSD Artificial Intelligence Center for Healthy Living at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine. He is the former President of the American Psychiatric Association (APA) and co-author of the new book WISER: The Scientific Roots of Wisdom, Compassion, and What Makes Us Good.
