This is the same oh so sexy Yale site but check out the list on this class! Philosophy score! This guy is very smart and does a fantastic job making you think more in-depth about texts most of us have read on our own. I especially like his talks about Plato's Republic.

Robert Wright is a genius. If you haven't read his books, "The Moral Animal" and "Non-Zero", I highly recommend you check them out.

In this TED talk, he speaks fast and covers a lot of ground in just 20 minutes.

Author Robert Wright explains "non-zero-sumness," a game-theory term describing how players with linked fortunes tend to cooperate for mutual benefit. This dynamic has guided our biological and cultural evolution, he says -- but our unwillingness to understand one another, as in the clash between the Muslim world and the West, will lead to all of us losing the "game." Once we recognize that life is a non-zero-sum game, in which we all must cooperate to succeed, it will force us to see that moral progress -- a move toward empathy -- is our only hope.

From your description it seems a lot like a theory I posited:

Ok, watched it. Exquisitely good and powerful talk.

I can't see how this guy isn't a staunch libertarian btw.

This is Rives doing a quick talk at TED2006. I've been a person that never liked the more artistic stuff at TED but after someone here posted a poem called "storm" by Tim Minchin (check it out if you haven't, its great) I've started to listen to this stuff more and really have enjoyed it.
