Lee Dugatkin discusses his new book, "The Prince of Evolution." The topic of the book is Peter Kropotkin, a Russian anarchist and biologist. Kropotkin's observations of villages and wildlife in Siberia let him to the conclusion that Darwinian evolution can lead to altruism, or mutual aid as he called it, and not only to competition.
Charles Darwin was a remarkable and influential man who marked the most important milestone in humanity's pulling away from relying on religious explanations of the world and our own origins and instead examining the evidence directly to find out what really happened. He is a hero not only to atheists but to all who respect reason and science.
You are invited to join us for a celebration of Charles Darwin and his accomplishments! The address and tentative schedule is posted below. This event is free and open to the public.
