Skywest Public Lecture : What makes us tick? The ten desires that drive us Other events...
Why do we talk as if we're rational and act as if we're not? Why do we fall out of love? What is the point of religion? As a social researcher, Hugh Mackay has spent a lifetime listening to people talk about their dreams, fears, faith, hopes, disappointments, frustrations, and fantasies. In 'What makes us tick? The ten desires that drive us' he reflects on some of the things that don't change and identifies key desires that drive us. This is an entertaining and inspiring account of why we do the things we do, and Mackay's conclusions go to the heart of some of life's big questions.
