Koristeći se zaključcima iz svoje poslednje knjige, kolumnista NYTimes-a, David Brooks otvara nove uvide u ljudsku prirodu kroz kognitivne nauke -- uvide koji imaju ogromne implikacije po ekonomiju i politiku kao i na našu samosvijest. U govoru prepunom humora, pokazuje kako je nemoguće shvatiti ljudska bića kao odvojene pojedince koji prave izbore na osnovu sopstvene svijesti.

When I got my current job, I was given a good piece of advice,
0
0
3000
Kada sam počeo raditi svoj sadašnji posao,
dobio sam dobar savjet
00:18
which was to interview three politicians every day.
1
3000
3000
a to je da svakog dana
intervjuišem troje političara.
00:21
And from that much contact with politicians,
2
6000
2000
I iz svog tog kontakta sa političarima,
00:23
I can tell you they're all emotional freaks of one sort or another.
3
8000
3000
mogu vam reći da su svi oni na neki način emocionalni čudaci.
00:27
They have what I called "logorrhea dementia,"
4
12000
2000
Oni pate od nečega što ja nazivam logorrhea dementia,
00:29
which is they talk so much they drive themselves insane.
5
14000
3000
što znači da pričaju toliko mnogo da na kraju sami sebe izlude.
00:32
(Laughter)
6
17000
2000
(Smijeh)
00:34
But what they do have is incredible social skills.
7
19000
3000
No, ono što oni posjeduju su nevjerovatne socijalne vještine.
00:37
When you meet them, they lock into you,
8
22000
2000
Kada se sretnete, oni vas obgrle,
00:39
they look you in the eye,
9
24000
2000
gledaju vas u oči,
00:41
they invade your personal space,
10
26000
2000
zaposjednu vaš lični prostor,
00:43
they massage the back of your head.
11
28000
2000
masiraju vam potiljak.
00:45
I had dinner with a Republican senator several months ago
12
30000
2000
Prije nekoliko mjeseci sam bio na večeri sa jednim Republikanskim senatorom
00:47
who kept his hand on my inner thigh
13
32000
2000
koji je tokom cijele večere držao ruku na unutrašnjoj strani moje butine
00:49
throughout the whole meal -- squeezing it.
14
34000
3000
-- stiskajući je.
00:52
I once -- this was years ago --
15
37000
2000
Jednom sam -- to je bilo prije mnogo godina --
00:54
I saw Ted Kennedy and Dan Quayle meet in the well of the Senate.
16
39000
2000
vidjeo Teda Kennedyja i Dana Quayle kako se susreću u Senatu.
00:56
And they were friends, and they hugged each other
17
41000
2000
Njih dvojica su bili prijatelji, zagrlili su se
00:58
and they were laughing, and their faces were like this far apart.
18
43000
3000
i smijali su se, dok su im lica bila tek ovoliko udaljena.
01:01
And they were moving and grinding
19
46000
2000
I micali su se i stiskali
01:03
and moving their arms up and down each other.
20
48000
2000
i mazili jedan drugog.
01:05
And I was like, "Get a room. I don't want to see this."
21
50000
3000
Ja sam bio u fazonu, "Uzmite sobu. Ne želim ovo gledati."
01:08
But they have those social skills.
22
53000
2000
Ali oni naprosto posjeduju te socijalne vještine.
01:10
Another case:
23
55000
2000
Drugi slučaj:
01:12
Last election cycle,
24
57000
2000
Tokom poslednjeg izbornog kruga sam
01:14
I was following Mitt Romney around New Hampshire,
25
59000
2000
pratio Mitta Romneya kroz New Hampshire.
01:16
and he was campaigning with his five perfect sons:
26
61000
3000
On je vodio kampanju sa petoricom svojih savršenih sinova:
01:19
Bip, Chip, Rip, Zip, Lip and Dip.
27
64000
2000
Bipom, Chipom, Ripom, Zipom, Lipom i Dipom.
01:21
(Laughter)
28
66000
2000
(Smijeh)
01:23
And he's going into a diner.
29
68000
2000
I on odlazi u restoran.
01:25
And he goes into the diner, introduces himself to a family
30
70000
3000
Ulazi u restoran, predstavlja se jednoj porodici
01:28
and says, "What village are you from in New Hampshire?"
31
73000
2000
i kaže, "Iz kojeg ste sela u New Hampshireu?"
01:30
And then he describes the home he owned in their village.
32
75000
3000
Te potom opiše kuću koju je imao u njihovom selu.
01:34
And so he goes around the room,
33
79000
3000
I tako prošeta prostorijom,
01:37
and then as he's leaving the diner,
34
82000
2000
a na izlasku iz restorana,
01:39
he first-names almost everybody he's just met.
35
84000
3000
obraća se prvim imenom gotovo svima koje je tek tada upoznao.
01:42
I was like, "Okay, that's social skill."
36
87000
2000
Pomislio sam "Pa dobro, to je socijalna vještina."
01:44
But the paradox is,
37
89000
2000
Ali paradoks je u tome što
01:46
when a lot of these people slip into the policy-making mode,
38
91000
4000
kada mnogi od ovih ljudi otpočnu sa oblikovanjem politika,
01:50
that social awareness vanishes
39
95000
2000
ta socijalna svijest iščezne
01:52
and they start talking like accountants.
40
97000
2000
i oni počinju pričati kao računovođe.
01:54
So in the course of my career,
41
99000
2000
Tokom svoje karijere sam
01:56
I have covered a series of failures.
42
101000
2000
pisao o mnogim neuspjesima.
01:58
We sent economists in the Soviet Union
43
103000
2000
Kada se Sovjetski Savez raspao
02:00
with privatization plans when it broke up,
44
105000
2000
mi smo poslali ekonomiste sa planovima privatizacije,
02:02
and what they really lacked was social trust.
45
107000
3000
a ono što je njima zapravo nedostajalo je bilo socijalno povjerenje.
02:05
We invaded Iraq with a military
46
110000
2000
Izvršili smo vojnu invaziju Iraka
02:07
oblivious to the cultural and psychological realities.
47
112000
3000
nesvjesni kulturnih i psiholoških realnosti.
02:10
We had a financial regulatory regime
48
115000
2000
Imali smo finansijski regulatorni režim
02:12
based on the assumptions
49
117000
2000
zasnovan na pretpostavkama
02:14
that traders were rational creatures
50
119000
2000
da su trgovci racionalna stvorenja
02:16
who wouldn't do anything stupid.
51
121000
2000
koja ne bi učinila ništa glupo.
02:18
For 30 years, I've been covering school reform
52
123000
3000
Trideset godina pišem o reformi školstva
02:21
and we've basically reorganized the bureaucratic boxes --
53
126000
3000
a praktično smo reorganizovali birokratske kutije --
02:24
charters, private schools, vouchers --
54
129000
3000
povelje, privatne škole, vaučere --
02:27
but we've had disappointing results year after year.
55
132000
4000
no, godinu za godinom imamo razočaravajuće rezultate.
02:31
And the fact is, people learn from people they love.
56
136000
3000
A činjenica je da ljudi uče od onih koje vole.
02:34
And if you're not talking about the individual relationship
57
139000
2000
I ako ne govorite o individualnoj vezi
02:36
between a teacher and a student,
58
141000
2000
između nastavnika i učenika,
02:38
you're not talking about that reality.
59
143000
2000
ne govorite o toj realnosti,
02:40
But that reality is expunged
60
145000
2000
ta realnost je izbrisana
02:42
from our policy-making process.
61
147000
2000
iz našeg procesa definisanja politika.
02:44
And so that's led to a question for me:
62
149000
3000
I to je me je dovelo do pitanja:
02:47
Why are the most socially-attuned people on earth
63
152000
3000
Zbog čega socijalno najprilagođeniji ljudi na planeti
02:50
completely dehumanized
64
155000
2000
postanu potpuno dehumanizirani
02:52
when they think about policy?
65
157000
3000
kada razmišljaju o politikama?
02:55
And I came to the conclusion,
66
160000
2000
I došao sam do zaključka
02:57
this is a symptom of a larger problem.
67
162000
3000
da je to simptom jednog većeg problema.
03:00
That, for centuries, we've inherited a view of human nature
68
165000
3000
Vijekovima nasljeđujemo sliku ljudske prirode
03:03
based on the notion
69
168000
2000
koja je zasnovana na pojmu
03:05
that we're divided selves,
70
170000
2000
da smo mi podijeljelja bića,
03:07
that reason is separated from the emotions
71
172000
3000
da je razum odvojen od emocija
03:10
and that society progresses
72
175000
2000
i da društvo napreduje
03:12
to the extent that reason can suppress the passions.
73
177000
3000
do te mjere da razum može potisnuti strasti.
03:15
And it's led to a view of human nature
74
180000
3000
To je dovelo do viđenja ljudske prirode
03:18
that we're rational individuals
75
183000
2000
po kojem smo mi racionalne individue
03:20
who respond in straightforward ways to incentives,
76
185000
3000
koje na direktan način odgovaraju na podsticaje.
03:23
and it's led to ways of seeing the world
77
188000
3000
I to je dovelo do načina posmatranja svijeta
03:26
where people try to use the assumptions of physics
78
191000
3000
u kojem ljudi pokušavaju da koriste pretpostavke iz fizike
03:29
to measure how human behavior is.
79
194000
4000
kako bi izmjerili ljudsko ponašanje.
03:34
And it's produced a great amputation,
80
199000
2000
To je stvorilo ogroman nedostatak,
03:36
a shallow view of human nature.
81
201000
3000
površno posmatranje ljudske prirode.
03:39
We're really good at talking about material things,
82
204000
2000
Jako smo dobri kada pričamo o materijalnim stvarima,
03:41
but we're really bad at talking about emotions.
83
206000
3000
ali smo očajni kada govorimo o emocijama.
03:44
We're really good at talking about skills
84
209000
2000
Dobri smo kada pričamo o vještinama,
03:46
and safety and health;
85
211000
2000
bezbjednosti i zdravlju,
03:48
we're really bad at talking about character.
86
213000
3000
ali smo jako loši kada pričamo o karakteru.
03:51
Alasdair MacIntyre, the famous philosopher,
87
216000
3000
Alasdair MacIntyre, poznati filosof,
03:54
said that, "We have the concepts of the ancient morality
88
219000
3000
je rekao "Poznajemo pojmove drevne moralnosti,
03:57
of virtue, honor, goodness,
89
222000
2000
vrline, časti, dobrote,
03:59
but we no longer have a system
90
224000
2000
ali više nemamo sistem
04:01
by which to connect them."
91
226000
2000
kojim bismo ih povezali."
04:03
And so this has led to a shallow path in politics,
92
228000
3000
I to nas je dovelo do površnog puta u politici,
04:06
but also in a whole range of human endeavors.
93
231000
4000
ali i mnogim drugim ljudskim nastojanjima.
04:10
You can see it in the way we raise our young kids.
94
235000
3000
To možete vidjeti u načinu na koji odgajamo djecu.
04:13
You go to an elementary school at three in the afternoon
95
238000
3000
Ako odete u osnovnu školu u tri sata poslijepodne
04:16
and you watch the kids come out,
96
241000
2000
i gledate djecu kako izlaze,
04:18
and they're wearing these 80-pound backpacks.
97
243000
3000
sva djeca nose ruksake teške 40 kilograma.
04:21
If the wind blows them over, they're like beetles stuck there on the ground.
98
246000
4000
Kada bi ih vjetar otpuhao, ležali bi kao bube izvrnute na zemlji.
04:25
You see these cars that drive up --
99
250000
2000
Vidite te automobile koji prilaze --
04:27
usually it's Saabs and Audis and Volvos,
100
252000
3000
uglavnom su to Saabovi, Audi i Volvo,
04:30
because in certain neighborhoods it's socially acceptable to have a luxury car,
101
255000
3000
jer je u pojedinim dijelovima grada društveno prihvatljivo imati luksuzni auto
04:33
so long as it comes from a country hostile to U.S. foreign policy --
102
258000
3000
dok god je porijeklom iz zemlje koja je neprijateljski nastrojena prema američkoj vanjskoj politici --
04:36
that's fine.
103
261000
2000
to je u redu.
04:38
They get picked up by these creatures I've called uber-moms,
104
263000
3000
Po njih dolaze ova stvorenja koja ja nazivam uber-mamama,
04:41
who are highly successful career women
105
266000
2000
to su izuzetno uspješne žene
04:43
who have taken time off to make sure all their kids get into Harvard.
106
268000
3000
koje naprave pauzu u karijeri kako bi bile sigurne da će im djeca upasti na Harvard.
04:46
And you can usually tell the uber-moms
107
271000
2000
Uber-mame uglavnom možete prepoznati
04:48
because they actually weigh less than their own children.
108
273000
2000
po tome što imaju manje kilograma od sopstvene djece.
04:50
(Laughter)
109
275000
2000
(Smijeh).
04:52
So at the moment of conception,
110
277000
2000
U trenutku začeća
04:54
they're doing little butt exercises.
111
279000
2000
one rade vježbice za guzu.
04:56
Babies flop out,
112
281000
2000
Bebe izlete van,
04:58
they're flashing Mandarin flashcards at the things.
113
283000
3000
dok im one mašu karticama na mandarinskom jeziku ispred nosa.
05:01
Driving them home, and they want them to be enlightened,
114
286000
3000
Voze ih kući, žele da budu prosvijetljeni,
05:04
so they take them to Ben & Jerry's ice cream company
115
289000
2000
pa ih vode u Ben i Jerry's slastičarne
05:06
with its own foreign policy.
116
291000
2000
koje imaju sopstvenu vanjsku politiku.
05:08
In one of my books,
117
293000
2000
U jednoj od mojih knjiga
05:10
I joke that Ben & Jerry's should make a pacifist toothpaste --
118
295000
2000
sam se našalio da bi Ben i Jerry's trebali napraviti pacifisirajuću pastu za zube --
05:12
doesn't kill germs, just asks them to leave.
119
297000
2000
koja ne ubija klice, već ih samo zamoli da odu.
05:14
It would be a big seller.
120
299000
2000
Odlično bi se prodavala.
05:16
(Laughter)
121
301000
2000
(Smijeh)
05:18
And they go to Whole Foods to get their baby formula,
122
303000
3000
I potom odlaze u prodavnice zdrave hrane da uzmu suplemente za bebe.
05:21
and Whole Foods is one of those progressive grocery stores
123
306000
2000
A ove prodavnice zdrave hrane su ona vrsta progresivnih prodavnica
05:23
where all the cashiers look like they're on loan from Amnesty International.
124
308000
3000
u kojima sve kasirke izgledaju kao da su pozajmljenje od organizacije Amnesty International.
05:26
(Laughter)
125
311000
2000
(Smijeh)
05:28
They buy these seaweed-based snacks there
126
313000
2000
Tu kupuju krekere od algi
05:30
called Veggie Booty with Kale,
127
315000
2000
koji se zovu Veggie Booty sa keljom,
05:32
which is for kids who come home and say,
128
317000
2000
koji su za djecu koja dođu kući kažu:
05:34
"Mom, mom, I want a snack that'll help prevent colon-rectal cancer."
129
319000
3000
"Mama, mama, hoću užinu koja pomaže u prevenciji raka debelog crijeva!
05:37
(Laughter)
130
322000
2000
(Smijeh)
05:39
And so the kids are raised in a certain way,
131
324000
2000
I tako se ta djeca odgajaju na određen način,
05:41
jumping through achievement hoops of the things we can measure --
132
326000
3000
preskaču kroz obruč ostvarenja koja se mogu izmjeriti --
05:44
SAT prep, oboe, soccer practice.
133
329000
3000
pripreme za prijemni ispit, oboa, fudbal.
05:47
They get into competitive colleges, they get good jobs,
134
332000
3000
Upisuju se na konkurentne koledže, dobijaju dobre poslove,
05:50
and sometimes they make a success of themselves
135
335000
2000
i ponekad postanu uspješni
05:52
in a superficial manner, and they make a ton of money.
136
337000
3000
na površan način, i zarade gomilu novca.
05:55
And sometimes you can see them at vacation places
137
340000
2000
A ponekad ih možete vidjeti u odmaralištima
05:57
like Jackson Hole or Aspen.
138
342000
2000
poput Jackson Hole ili Aspena.
05:59
And they've become elegant and slender --
139
344000
2000
I onda vidite da su i oni postali elegantni i vitki --
06:01
they don't really have thighs;
140
346000
2000
zapravo nemaju butine;
06:03
they just have one elegant calve on top of another.
141
348000
3000
imaju samo dva elegantna lista, jedan na drugome.
06:06
(Laughter)
142
351000
2000
(Smijeh)
06:08
They have kids of their own,
143
353000
2000
I oni imaju svoju djecu,
06:10
and they've achieved a genetic miracle by marrying beautiful people,
144
355000
3000
a ostvarili su genetsko čudo ženeći se ili udajući lijepim ljudima,
06:13
so their grandmoms look like Gertrude Stein,
145
358000
3000
tako da njihove bake izgledaju kao Gertrude Stein,
06:16
their daughters looks like Halle Berry -- I don't know how they've done that.
146
361000
3000
njihove kćerke poput Halle Berry -- ne znam kako im to uspjeva.
06:19
They get there and they realize
147
364000
3000
Dospiju dotle i tada shvate
06:22
it's fashionable now to have dogs a third as tall as your ceiling heights.
148
367000
4000
da je sada u modi imati pse koji su visoki do pola zida.
06:26
So they've got these furry 160-pound dogs --
149
371000
3000
I tako oni imaju ove čupave pse teške 80kg --
06:29
all look like velociraptors,
150
374000
3000
koji izgledaju kao velociraptori (vrsta dinosaurusa, prim.prev.),
06:32
all named after Jane Austen characters.
151
377000
3000
a imena su dobili po likovima Jane Austin.
06:35
And then when they get old, they haven't really developed a philosophy of life,
152
380000
3000
I onda kada ostare, shvate da zapravo nisu razvili životnu filozofiju,
06:38
but they've decided, "I've been successful at everything;
153
383000
2000
ali odluče, "Uspješan/-na sam u svemu,
06:40
I'm just not going to die."
154
385000
2000
i jednostavno neću umrijeti."
06:42
And so they hire personal trainers;
155
387000
3000
I onda unajme lične trenere,
06:45
they're popping Cialis like breath mints.
156
390000
2000
gutaju Cialis kao pepermint bombone.
06:47
You see them on the mountains up there.
157
392000
2000
I tako ih viđate na planinama.
06:49
They're cross-country skiing up the mountain
158
394000
2000
Skijaju uz planinu
06:51
with these grim expressions
159
396000
2000
sa namrgođenim izrazom lica
06:53
that make Dick Cheney look like Jerry Lewis.
160
398000
2000
tako da pored njih Dick Cheney izgleda kao Jerry Lewis.
06:55
(Laughter)
161
400000
2000
(Smijeh)
06:57
And as they whiz by you,
162
402000
2000
I dok proleću pored vas
06:59
it's like being passed by a little iron Raisinet
163
404000
2000
kao da vas mimoilaze male željezne grožđice
07:01
going up the hill.
164
406000
2000
koje se penju uzbrdo.
07:03
(Laughter)
165
408000
2000
(Smijeh)
07:05
And so this is part of what life is,
166
410000
3000
Znači, ovo je dio onoga što čini život,
07:08
but it's not all of what life is.
167
413000
3000
ali nije sve u životu.
07:11
And over the past few years,
168
416000
2000
Mislim da smo tokom nekoliko poslednjih godina,
07:13
I think we've been given a deeper view of human nature
169
418000
4000
dobili dublji pogled na ljudsku prirodu
07:17
and a deeper view of who we are.
170
422000
2000
i dublji uvid u to ko smo mi.
07:19
And it's not based on theology or philosophy,
171
424000
2000
A on ne počiva na teologiji ili filosofiji,
07:21
it's in the study of the mind,
172
426000
2000
već na izučavanju uma,
07:23
across all these spheres of research,
173
428000
2000
u raznim sferama istraživanja.
07:25
from neuroscience to the cognitive scientists,
174
430000
2000
od neuroloških do kognitivnih naučnika,
07:27
behavioral economists, psychologists,
175
432000
2000
bihejvioralnih ekonomista, psihologa,
07:29
sociology,
176
434000
2000
sociologa,
07:31
we're developing a revolution in consciousness.
177
436000
3000
razvijamo revoluciju svjesti.
07:34
And when you synthesize it all,
178
439000
2000
I kada napravite sintezu svega toga,
07:36
it's giving us a new view of human nature.
179
441000
2000
dobijemo novi pogled na ljudsku prirodu.
07:38
And far from being a coldly materialistic view of nature,
180
443000
3000
Daleko od toga da je to hladno materijalističko viđenje prirode,
07:41
it's a new humanism, it's a new enchantment.
181
446000
3000
to je novi humanizam, nova očaranost.
07:44
And I think when you synthesize this research,
182
449000
2000
Mislim da, kada napravite sintezu ovog istraživanja,
07:46
you start with three key insights.
183
451000
2000
otpočnete sa tri ključna uvida.
07:48
The first insight is
184
453000
2000
Prvi uvid je taj da
07:50
that while the conscious mind writes the autobiography of our species,
185
455000
3000
dok svjesni um piše autobiografiju naše vrste,
07:53
the unconscious mind does most of the work.
186
458000
4000
nesvjesni um obavlja najveći dio posla.
07:57
And so one way to formulate that is
187
462000
2000
Mogli bismo reći da
07:59
the human mind can take in millions of pieces of information a minute,
188
464000
3000
ljudski um može primiti milione informacija u minuti,
08:02
of which it can be consciously aware of about 40.
189
467000
3000
ali može biti svjestan samo otprilike njih 40.
08:05
And this leads to oddities.
190
470000
2000
A to vodi ka čudnim stvarima.
08:07
One of my favorite is that people named Dennis
191
472000
2000
Jedna od mojih omiljenih je da ljudi po imenu Dennis
08:09
are disproportionately likely to become dentists,
192
474000
3000
imaju disproporcionalnu vjerovatnoću da postanu zubari (Dennis-dentist),
08:12
people named Lawrence become lawyers,
193
477000
2000
oni koji se zovu Lawrence postaju advokati (Lawrence-lawyer)
08:14
because unconsciously we gravitate toward things
194
479000
2000
jer nesvjesno gravitiramo ka stvarima
08:16
that sound familiar,
195
481000
2000
koje zvuči poznato,
08:18
which is why I named my daughter President of the United States Brooks.
196
483000
3000
a zbog čega sam svoju kćerku nazvao Predsjednica Sjedinjenih Država Brooks.
08:21
(Laughter)
197
486000
3000
(Smijeh)
08:24
Another finding is that the unconscious,
198
489000
3000
Drugo otkriće je da to nesvjesno,
08:27
far from being dumb and sexualized,
199
492000
2000
koje je daleko od toga da je glupo i seksualizirano,
08:29
is actually quite smart.
200
494000
2000
zapravo prilično pametno.
08:31
So one of the most cognitively demanding things we do is buy furniture.
201
496000
3000
Jedna od kognitivno najzahtjevnijih stvari koje radimo je kupovina namještaja.
08:34
It's really hard to imagine a sofa, how it's going to look in your house.
202
499000
3000
Zaista je teško zamisliti kako će divan izgledati u vašem domu.
08:37
And the way you should do that
203
502000
2000
A ono što biste trebali učiniti
08:39
is study the furniture,
204
504000
2000
je da proučite namještaj,
08:41
let it marinate in your mind, distract yourself,
205
506000
2000
pustite ga da se marinira u vašim mislima, i da se zanimate nečim drugim,
08:43
and then a few days later, go with your gut,
206
508000
2000
te da poslije nekoliko dana slijedite osjećaj,
08:45
because unconsciously you've figured it out.
207
510000
2000
jer ste nesvjesno već odlučili.
08:47
The second insight
208
512000
2000
Drugi uvid je
08:49
is that emotions are at the center of our thinking.
209
514000
3000
da su emocije u centru našeg razmišljanja.
08:52
People with strokes and lesions
210
517000
2000
Ljudi koji su imali moždani udar ili lezije
08:54
in the emotion-processing parts of the brain
211
519000
2000
u dijelu mozga koji obrađuje emocije
08:56
are not super smart,
212
521000
2000
nisu super pametni,
08:58
they're actually sometimes quite helpless.
213
523000
2000
ponekad su zapravo potpuno bespomoćni.
09:00
And the "giant" in the field is in the room tonight
214
525000
2000
Večeras je sa nama veliki stručnjak u toj oblasti
09:02
and is speaking tomorrow morning -- Antonio Damasio.
215
527000
3000
-- Antonio Damasio, koji će govoriti sutra.
09:05
And one of the things he's really shown us
216
530000
2000
Jedna od stvari koje nam je pokazao
09:07
is that emotions are not separate from reason,
217
532000
3000
je da emocije nisu odvojene od razuma,
09:10
but they are the foundation of reason
218
535000
2000
već su temelj razuma
09:12
because they tell us what to value.
219
537000
2000
jer nam kazuju šta da vrjednujemo.
09:14
And so reading and educating your emotions
220
539000
2000
Čitanje i obrazovanje vaših emocija
09:16
is one of the central activities of wisdom.
221
541000
3000
su jedna od centralnih aktivnosti mudrosti.
09:19
Now I'm a middle-aged guy.
222
544000
2000
Evo, ja sam muškarac u srednjim godinama;
09:21
I'm not exactly comfortable with emotions.
223
546000
2000
nije mi baš prijatno sa emocijama.
09:23
One of my favorite brain stories described these middle-aged guys.
224
548000
3000
Jedna od mojih omiljenih priča o mozgu opisuje nekoliko muškaraca srednjih godina.
09:26
They put them into a brain scan machine --
225
551000
3000
Stavljaju ih uređaj u za skeniranje mozga --
09:29
this is apocryphal by the way, but I don't care --
226
554000
3000
usput, ovo je apokrifično, no nije me briga --
09:32
and they had them watch a horror movie,
227
557000
3000
i daju im da gledaju horor film,
09:35
and then they had them describe their feelings toward their wives.
228
560000
4000
a potom ih pitaju da opišu šta osjećaju prema svojim suprugama.
09:39
And the brain scans were identical in both activities.
229
564000
3000
Snimke mozga su bile identične prilikom obje aktivnosti.
09:42
It was just sheer terror.
230
567000
2000
To je bio potpuni užas.
09:44
So me talking about emotion
231
569000
2000
Tako da kada ja pričam o emocijama
09:46
is like Gandhi talking about gluttony,
232
571000
2000
je kao kada bi Gandhi pričao o proždrljivosti,
09:48
but it is the central organizing process
233
573000
2000
no to je centralni organizacioni proces
09:50
of the way we think.
234
575000
2000
načina na koji razmišljamo.
09:52
It tells us what to imprint.
235
577000
2000
Govori nam šta da zapamtimo.
09:54
The brain is the record of the feelings of a life.
236
579000
2000
Mozak je skladište osjećanja jednog života.
09:56
And the third insight
237
581000
2000
I treći uvid
09:58
is that we're not primarily self-contained individuals.
238
583000
4000
je da nismo prvenstveno samo-dovoljne individue.
10:02
We're social animals, not rational animals.
239
587000
3000
Mi smo društvene životinje, a ne racionalne životinje.
10:05
We emerge out of relationships,
240
590000
2000
Izranjamo iz veza,
10:07
and we are deeply interpenetrated, one with another.
241
592000
3000
i duboko smo prožeti jedni drugima.
10:10
And so when we see another person,
242
595000
2000
I kada vidimo drugu osobu,
10:12
we reenact in our own minds
243
597000
2000
u sopstvenim umovima preslikamo
10:14
what we see in their minds.
244
599000
2000
ono što vidimo u njihovim.
10:16
When we watch a car chase in a movie,
245
601000
2000
Kada gledamo jurnjavu auta u filmu,
10:18
it's almost as if we are subtly having a car chase.
246
603000
3000
kao da i mi sami donekle učestvujemo u jurnjavi.
10:21
When we watch pornography,
247
606000
2000
Kada gledamo pornografiju,
10:23
it's a little like having sex,
248
608000
2000
pomalo je kao da i sami upražnjavamo seks,
10:25
though probably not as good.
249
610000
2000
premda, vjerovatno, ne podjednako dobro.
10:27
And we see this when lovers walk down the street,
250
612000
3000
Vidimo to kada zaljubljeni parovi šetaju ulicom,
10:30
when a crowd in Egypt or Tunisia
251
615000
2000
kada masu ljudi u Egiptu ili Tunisu
10:32
gets caught up in an emotional contagion,
252
617000
2000
preplavi emotivni talas,
10:34
the deep interpenetration.
253
619000
2000
duboko uzajamno prožimanje.
10:36
And this revolution in who we are
254
621000
3000
A ova revolucija u tome ko smo mi
10:39
gives us a different way of seeing, I think, politics,
255
624000
3000
omogućava da na drugačiji način posmatramo politiku
10:42
a different way, most importantly,
256
627000
2000
što je najznačajnije, na drugačiji način
10:44
of seeing human capital.
257
629000
2000
posmatramo ljudski potencijal.
10:46
We are now children of the French Enlightenment.
258
631000
4000
Mi smo sada djeca francuskog prosvjetiteljstva.
10:50
We believe that reason is the highest of the faculties.
259
635000
3000
Vjerujemo da je razum najviša od sposobnosti.
10:53
But I think this research shows
260
638000
2000
No, mislim da ovo istraživanje pokazuje
10:55
that the British Enlightenment, or the Scottish Enlightenment,
261
640000
2000
da je britansko prosvjetiteljstvo, ili škotsko prosvjetiteljstvo,
10:57
with David Hume, Adam Smith,
262
642000
2000
sa Davidom Humom, Adamom Smithom,
10:59
actually had a better handle on who we are --
263
644000
3000
zapravo imalo bolju ideju o tome ko smo mi --
11:02
that reason is often weak, our sentiments are strong,
264
647000
3000
razum je često slab, naša osjećanja su jaka,
11:05
and our sentiments are often trustworthy.
265
650000
3000
a osjećanjima se često može vjerovati.
11:08
And this work corrects that bias in our culture,
266
653000
3000
Ovaj rad ispravlja tu pristrasnost u našoj kulturi,
11:11
that dehumanizing bias.
267
656000
2000
tu duboko humanizirajuću pristrasnost.
11:13
It gives us a deeper sense
268
658000
2000
Daje nam dublji smisao
11:15
of what it actually takes
269
660000
2000
onoga što je zapravo potrebno
11:17
for us to thrive in this life.
270
662000
2000
da bismo napredovali u ovom životu.
11:19
When we think about human capital
271
664000
2000
Kada razmišljamo o ljudskom potencijalu
11:21
we think about the things we can measure easily --
272
666000
3000
mislimo na ono što možemo lako izmjeriti --
11:24
things like grades, SAT's, degrees,
273
669000
3000
poput ocjena, prijemnog ispita za koledž, diploma,
11:27
the number of years in schooling.
274
672000
2000
broja godina obrazovanja.
11:29
What it really takes to do well, to lead a meaningful life,
275
674000
3000
Ono što je zaista potrebno da bismo vodili smislen život
11:32
are things that are deeper,
276
677000
2000
je nešto što je mnogo dublje,
11:34
things we don't really even have words for.
277
679000
3000
nešto za šta čak nemamo riječi.
11:37
And so let me list just a couple of the things
278
682000
2000
Dopustite mi da nabrojim nekoliko stvari
11:39
I think this research points us toward trying to understand.
279
684000
4000
ka čijem razumijevanje nas ovo istraživanje upućuje.
11:43
The first gift, or talent, is mindsight --
280
688000
3000
Prvi dar, ili talenat, je pronicljivost --
11:46
the ability to enter into other people's minds
281
691000
4000
sposobnost da uđemo u umove drugih
11:50
and learn what they have to offer.
282
695000
2000
i shvatimo šta imaju za ponuditi.
11:52
Babies come with this ability.
283
697000
2000
Bebe se rađaju sa tom sposobnošću.
11:54
Meltzoff, who's at the University of Washington,
284
699000
2000
Meltzoff, sa Univerziteta u Washingtonu,
11:56
leaned over a baby who was 43 minutes old.
285
701000
3000
nagnuo se nad bebu koja je bila stara 43 minute.
11:59
He wagged his tongue at the baby.
286
704000
2000
Isplazio joj je jezik.
12:01
The baby wagged her tongue back.
287
706000
3000
Beba je isplazila svoj jezik zauzvrat.
12:04
Babies are born to interpenetrate into Mom's mind
288
709000
3000
Bebe su rođene da proniknu u majčin um
12:07
and to download what they find --
289
712000
2000
i preuzmu ono što nađu --
12:09
their models of how to understand reality.
290
714000
2000
njihove modele razumevanja stvarnosti.
12:11
In the United States, 55 percent of babies
291
716000
3000
U Sjedinjenim Državama, 55% beba
12:14
have a deep two-way conversation with Mom
292
719000
2000
ima dubok dvosmjerni razgovor sa majkama
12:16
and they learn models to how to relate to other people.
293
721000
3000
i tako usvajaju modele odnošenja prema drugim ljudima.
12:19
And those people who have models of how to relate
294
724000
2000
A pojedinci koji imaju takve modele odnosa
12:21
have a huge head start in life.
295
726000
2000
u ogromnoj su prednosti u životu.
12:23
Scientists at the University of Minnesota did a study
296
728000
2000
Naučnici na Univerzitetu Minnesota su radili studiju
12:25
in which they could predict
297
730000
2000
u kojoj su mogli predvidjeti
12:27
with 77 percent accuracy, at age 18 months,
298
732000
3000
sa 77% tačnosti, u dobu od 18 mjeseci,
12:30
who was going to graduate from high school,
299
735000
2000
ko će maturirati u srednjoj školi,
12:32
based on who had good attachment with mom.
300
737000
3000
na osnovu toga ko je imao dobru vezu sa majkom.
12:35
Twenty percent of kids do not have those relationships.
301
740000
3000
20% djece nemaju takvu vrstu odnosa.
12:38
They are what we call avoidantly attached.
302
743000
2000
Oni su ono što mi nazivamo izbjegavajuće privrženi.
12:40
They have trouble relating to other people.
303
745000
2000
Imaju teškoća u odnosima prema drugim ljudima.
12:42
They go through life
304
747000
2000
Idu kroz život
12:44
like sailboats tacking into the wind --
305
749000
2000
poput jedrilica koje poigravaju na vjetru --
12:46
wanting to get close to people,
306
751000
2000
žele da se približe ljudima,
12:48
but not really having the models of how to do that.
307
753000
3000
ali zapravo nemaju modele na koji način da to urade.
12:51
And so this is one skill
308
756000
2000
I to je jedna od vještina
12:53
of how to hoover up knowledge, one from another.
309
758000
2000
usvajanja znanja, jedno od drugoga.
12:55
A second skill is equal poise,
310
760000
3000
Druga vještina je izbalansiranost.
12:58
the ability to have the serenity
311
763000
2000
Sposobnost da se posjeduje smirenost
13:00
to read the biases and failures in your own mind.
312
765000
3000
da se prepoznaju predrasude i neuspjesi u sopstvenom umu.
13:03
So for example, we are overconfidence machines.
313
768000
3000
Na primjer, mi smo uređaji sa pretjeranim samopouzdanjem.
13:06
Ninety-five percent of our professors report
314
771000
3000
95% naših profesora kažu
13:09
that they are above-average teachers.
315
774000
2000
da su oni iznad prosječnih nastavnika.
13:11
Ninety-six percent of college students
316
776000
2000
96% studenata
13:13
say they have above-average social skills.
317
778000
3000
kažu da posjeduju nadprosječne socijalne vještine.
13:16
Time magazine asked Americans, "Are you in the top one percent of earners?"
318
781000
3000
Time magazin je pitao Amerikance, "Spadate li vi u onih 1% na samom vrhu po zaradi?"
13:19
Nineteen percent of Americans are in the top one percent of earners.
319
784000
3000
19% Amerikanaca se nalaze među tih 1%.
13:22
(Laughter)
320
787000
2000
(Smijeh)
13:24
This is a gender-linked trait, by the way.
321
789000
2000
Usput rečeno, to je i rodna odlika.
13:26
Men drown at twice the rate of women,
322
791000
2000
Muškarci se utapaju u dvostruko većem broju u odnosu na žene,
13:28
because men think they can swim across that lake.
323
793000
3000
jer misle da mogu preplivati jezero.
13:31
But some people have the ability and awareness
324
796000
3000
No, neki ljudi imaju sposobnost i svijest
13:34
of their own biases, their own overconfidence.
325
799000
3000
o sopstvenim predrasudama, o svom pretjeranom samopouzdanju.
13:37
They have epistemological modesty.
326
802000
2000
Oni posjeduju epistemološku skromnost.
13:39
They are open-minded in the face of ambiguity.
327
804000
3000
Otvorenog uma se suočavaju sa dvosmislenošću.
13:42
They are able to adjust strength of the conclusions
328
807000
2000
U stanju su prilagoditi snagu zaključaka
13:44
to the strength of their evidence.
329
809000
2000
snazi svojih dokaza.
13:46
They are curious.
330
811000
2000
Radoznali su.
13:48
And these traits are often unrelated and uncorrelated with IQ.
331
813000
3000
A ove odlike često nisu povezane, niti imaju bilo kakvu uzajamnu vezu sa koeficijentom inteligencije.
13:51
The third trait is metis,
332
816000
2000
Treća odlika je medes,
13:53
what we might call street smarts -- it's a Greek word.
333
818000
3000
ono što zovemo mudrost ulice -- to je grčka riječ.
13:56
It's a sensitivity to the physical environment,
334
821000
2000
To je osjetljivost na fizičko okruženja,
13:58
the ability to pick out patterns in an environment --
335
823000
2000
sposobnost razaznavanja obrazaca iz okruženja --
14:00
derive a gist.
336
825000
2000
izvlačenja srži.
14:02
One of my colleagues at the Times
337
827000
2000
Jedan od mojih kolega iz Times-a
14:04
did a great story about soldiers in Iraq
338
829000
2000
je napisao sjajnu priču o vojnicima u Iraku
14:06
who could look down a street and detect somehow
339
831000
3000
koji bi mogli pogledati niz ulicu i nekako utvrditi
14:09
whether there was an IED, a landmine, in the street.
340
834000
2000
da li u njoj ima eksplozivnih sredstava, ili nagaznih mina.
14:11
They couldn't tell you how they did it,
341
836000
2000
Nisu znali objasniti kako to rade,
14:13
but they could feel cold, they felt a coldness,
342
838000
3000
već bi jednostavno osjetili jezu, osjetili bi hladnoću,
14:16
and they were more often right than wrong.
343
841000
3000
i mnogo češće su bili u pravu nego što bi pogriješili.
14:19
The third is what you might call sympathy,
344
844000
2000
Treće je ono što bi se moglo nazvati saosjećanjem,
14:21
the ability to work within groups.
345
846000
3000
sposobnošću da radimo unutar grupa.
14:24
And that comes in tremendously handy,
346
849000
3000
A to je nevjerovatno zgodno imati,
14:27
because groups are smarter than individuals.
347
852000
2000
jer su grupe pametnije od pojedinaca --
14:29
And face-to-face groups are much smarter
348
854000
2000
a grupe koje sarađuju neposredno su mnogo pametnije
14:31
than groups that communicate electronically,
349
856000
3000
od grupa koje komuniciraju elektronskim putem,
14:34
because 90 percent of our communication is non-verbal.
350
859000
3000
jer je 90% naše komunikacije neverbalna.
14:37
And the effectiveness of a group
351
862000
2000
Efikasnost grupe
14:39
is not determined by the IQ of the group;
352
864000
3000
nije određena koeficijentom inteligencije grupe,
14:42
it's determined by how well they communicate,
353
867000
3000
već time koliko uspješno članovi grupe komuniciraju,
14:45
how often they take turns in conversation.
354
870000
3000
koliko često se smjenjuju u razgovoru.
14:48
Then you could talk about a trait like blending.
355
873000
3000
A onda možemo pričati o ličnoj crti poput uklapanja.
14:51
Any child can say, "I'm a tiger," pretend to be a tiger.
356
876000
3000
Svako dijete može reći, "ja sam tigar", i pretvarati se da jeste.
14:54
It seems so elementary.
357
879000
2000
To izgleda potpuno obično.
14:56
But in fact, it's phenomenally complicated
358
881000
2000
No, zapravo je izuzetno komplikovano
14:58
to take a concept "I" and a concept "tiger"
359
883000
2000
uzeti pojam "ja" i pojam "tigar"
15:00
and blend them together.
360
885000
2000
i spojiti ih zajedno.
15:02
But this is the source of innovation.
361
887000
2000
Ali to je izvor inovacije.
15:04
What Picasso did, for example,
362
889000
2000
Picasso je, na primjer,
15:06
was take the concept "Western art"
363
891000
2000
uzeo koncept zapadnjačke umjetnosti
15:08
and the concept "African masks"
364
893000
2000
i koncept afričkih maski
15:10
and blend them together --
365
895000
2000
i spojio ih --
15:12
not only the geometry,
366
897000
2000
ne samo geometriju,
15:14
but the moral systems entailed in them.
367
899000
2000
već i moralne sisteme sadržane u njima.
15:16
And these are skills, again, we can't count and measure.
368
901000
2000
A to su, opet, vještine koje ne možemo brojati niti mjeriti.
15:18
And then the final thing I'll mention
369
903000
2000
I poslednja stvar koju ću pomenuti
15:20
is something you might call limerence.
370
905000
2000
je nešto što biste mogli nazvati iskustvom zaljubljivanja.
15:22
And this is not an ability;
371
907000
2000
To nije sposobnost,
15:24
it's a drive and a motivation.
372
909000
3000
već poriv i motivacija.
15:27
The conscious mind hungers for success and prestige.
373
912000
3000
Svjestan um žudi za uspjehom i prestižem.
15:30
The unconscious mind hungers
374
915000
2000
Nesvjestan um čezne za
15:32
for those moments of transcendence,
375
917000
2000
onim trenucima transcendentalnog,
15:34
when the skull line disappears
376
919000
2000
kada fizička granica nestane,
15:36
and we are lost in a challenge or a task --
377
921000
3000
a mi se izgubimo u izazovu ili zadatku --
15:39
when a craftsman feels lost in his craft,
378
924000
3000
kada se zanatlija izgubi u svom zanatu,
15:42
when a naturalist feels at one with nature,
379
927000
3000
kada prirodnjak osjeti jedinstvo sa prirodom,
15:45
when a believer feels at one with God's love.
380
930000
3000
kada vjernik osjeti da je dio božje ljubavi.
15:48
That is what the unconscious mind hungers for.
381
933000
3000
To je ono za čim žudi nesvjestan um.
15:51
And many of us feel it in love
382
936000
2000
Mnogi od nas osjećaju to u ljubavi
15:53
when lovers feel fused.
383
938000
2000
kad ljubavnici osjećaju jedinstvo.
15:55
And one of the most beautiful descriptions
384
940000
2000
Jedan od najljepših opisa
15:57
I've come across in this research
385
942000
3000
na koje sam naišao tokom ovog istraživanja
16:00
of how minds interpenetrate
386
945000
2000
o tome na koji način se misli prepliću
16:02
was written by a great theorist and scientist
387
947000
2000
napisao je čuveni teoretičar i naučnik
16:04
named Douglas Hofstadter at the University of Indiana.
388
949000
3000
po imenu Douglas Hofstadter sa Univerziteta Indiana.
16:07
He was married to a woman named Carol,
389
952000
2000
Bio je oženjen ženom po imenu Carol,
16:09
and they had a wonderful relationship.
390
954000
2000
i imali su predivnu vezu.
16:11
When their kids were five and two,
391
956000
2000
Kada su njihova djeca imala pet i dvije godine,
16:13
Carol had a stroke and a brain tumor and died suddenly.
392
958000
4000
Carol je imala moždani udar i tumor, i iznenada je preminula.
16:17
And Hofstadter wrote a book
393
962000
2000
Hofstadter je napisao knjigu
16:19
called "I Am a Strange Loop."
394
964000
2000
pod nazivom "Ja sam neobična petlja".
16:21
In the course of that book, he describes a moment --
395
966000
2000
Na jednom mjestu u toj knjizi opisuje trenutak --
16:23
just months after Carol has died --
396
968000
3000
svega mjesec dana nakon što je Carol umrla --
16:26
he comes across her picture on the mantel,
397
971000
2000
kadabi pronašao njezinu sliku na polici,
16:28
or on a bureau in his bedroom.
398
973000
2000
ili na pisaćem stolu u spavaćoj sobi.
16:30
And here's what he wrote:
399
975000
2000
Napisao je sljedeće:
16:32
"I looked at her face,
400
977000
2000
"Gledao sam njezino lice,
16:34
and I looked so deeply
401
979000
2000
i tako duboko sam gledao
16:36
that I felt I was behind her eyes.
402
981000
2000
da sam osjetio kao da gledam njenim očima.
16:38
And all at once I found myself saying
403
983000
2000
I odjednom sam se našao kako,
16:40
as tears flowed,
404
985000
2000
dok su mi suze tekle,
16:42
'That's me. That's me.'
405
987000
2000
govorim "To sam ja. To sam ja."
16:44
And those simple words
406
989000
2000
I te jednostavne riječi
16:46
brought back many thoughts that I had had before,
407
991000
2000
su vratile mnoge misli koje sam nekada imao
16:48
about the fusion of our souls
408
993000
2000
o spajanju naših duša
16:50
into one higher-level entity,
409
995000
2000
u jedno biće na višem nivou,
16:52
about the fact that at the core of both our souls
410
997000
3000
o činjenici da se u suštini naših duša
16:55
lay our identical hopes and dreams for our children,
411
1000000
4000
nalaze naše identične nade i snovi o našoj djeci,
16:59
about the notion that those hopes
412
1004000
2000
o saznanju da te nade
17:01
were not separate or distinct hopes,
413
1006000
2000
nisu odvojene niti različite,
17:03
but were just one hope,
414
1008000
2000
već tek jedna nada,
17:05
one clear thing that defined us both,
415
1010000
2000
jedna jasna stvar koja nas je definisala oboje,
17:07
that welded us into a unit --
416
1012000
2000
koja nas je stopila u jedinku --
17:09
the kind of unit I had but dimly imagined
417
1014000
3000
jedinku kakvu gotovo da nisam mogao zamisliti
17:12
before being married and having children.
418
1017000
3000
dok se nisam oženio i dobio djecu.
17:15
I realized that, though Carol had died,
419
1020000
2000
Shvatio sam da, iako je Carol umrla,
17:17
that core piece of her had not died at all,
420
1022000
3000
taj suštinski dio nje uopšte nije umro,
17:20
but had lived on very determinedly in my brain."
421
1025000
4000
već je odlučno nastavio živjeti u mome mozgu."
17:24
The Greeks say we suffer our way to wisdom.
422
1029000
3000
Grci kažu da patnjom stižemo do mudrosti.
17:27
Through his suffering, Hofstadter understood
423
1032000
2000
Kroz svoju patnju, Hofstadter je shvatio
17:29
how deeply interpenetrated we are.
424
1034000
3000
koliko duboko smo isprepleteni.
17:32
Through the policy failures of the last 30 years,
425
1037000
3000
Kroz političke neuspjehe tokom poslednjih 30 godina,
17:35
we have come to acknowledge, I think,
426
1040000
3000
mislim da smo shvatili
17:38
how shallow our view of human nature has been.
427
1043000
3000
koliko je površno naše viđenje ljudske prirode.
17:41
And now as we confront that shallowness
428
1046000
3000
I sada kada se suočavamo sa tom površnošću
17:44
and the failures that derive from our inability
429
