The evolution of altruism and morality.

Why do we find something fair or unfair? And why are we able to think beyond our own interests and take those of others into account? Econometrist Matthijs van Veelen (born in 1972) studies the evolution of altruism and morality. In his research, he draws on evolutionary game theory, the application of classical game theory (economics) to populations of life forms in biology. He is also an arranger and musical director of the Philharmonic Funk Foundation, a 44-member funk orchestra that he co-founded.
