David Sloan Wilson of Binghamton University will be speaking on "This View of Life: Completing the Darwinian Revolution and Evolving the Future" at noon on October 5 in Haller Hall, Geological Museum, Room 102, 24 Oxford Street in Cambridge.
A description of the event: "The study of evolution in relation to human affairs lags behind the study of evolution in relation to biology by about a century. The statement 'Nothing about X makes sense except in the light of evolution' is already commonplace for X=biology, is becoming acceptable for X=the academic study of humans, and remains mystifying and/or threatening for X=public policy. I will provide an overview of these trends with a focus on public policy as the wise management of evolutionary processes."
The Julia Booms Memorial Lecture, the event is free and open to the public. For further information, visit:
