Department of Human Evolutionary Biology's Julia Booms Memorial Lecture

“This View of Life: Completing the Darwinian Revolution and Evolving the Future” by David Sloan Wilson, Distinguished Professor of Biological Sciences and Anthropology, Binghamton University.

Abstract:  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.
