Avi Tuschman's book Our Political Nature explores the science underlying political orientation. The book examines how political views arise from three clusters of measurable personality traits, which entail opposing attitudes toward tribalism, inequality, and differing perceptions of human nature. This groundbreaking work is based on new interdisciplinary insights from the fields of primatology, genetics, neuroscience, and anthropology.

Avi Tuschman discussed the book and his latest research. The Berkley Center's Tom Banchoff moderated.
