WHY WE PREVAILED: EVOLUTION AND THE BATTLE FOR DOMINANCE

Date: Saturday June 2, 2012
Time: 06:00 PM-07:30 PM
Venue: Tishman Auditorium at The New School

We once shared the planet with Neanderthals and other human species. Some of our relatives may have had tools, language and culture. Why did we thrive while they perished? Join evolutionary biologists, geneticists and anthropologists as they share profound insights about the origin of man and retrace our singular journey from fledgling prototype to the most dominant species on Earth.

This program is part of The Big Idea Series, made possible with support from the John Templeton Foundation.
