In Susan Pinker’s book The Village Effect, she talks about how important face-to-face contact is with other people for long term growth and happiness. The village symbolizes the people that surround you in your life, whether it be close friends or just aquaintances. When our society relies so much on digital and technical interactions, Pinker argues that this is not enough to live a healthy, happy, resilient life.
