E. O. Wilson
A New Conception of Human Evolution

Upending evolutionary theory, Edward O. Wilson tackles three fundamental questions: Where did we come from? What are we? Where are we going? Contrary to the belief that evolution naturally encourages creatures to put family first, the preeminent biologist and author of Social Conquest of the Earth shows that group selection, not kin selection, is the primary driving force of human evolution, and that the sources of morality, religion, and the creative arts are fundamentally biological in nature. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life, with University Book Store. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola.
