TELOS -The Evolution of Social Beings

Stepping way beyond the old nature-nurture debate, this is a basic course in social biology, focusing on the survival benefits of complex social organization—eusociality—to individual and species survival. From wasps, ants and bees, to vast arrays of mammals from mole rats to great apes (including ourselves), we will look at the majestic and often brutal interplay of genes, environment and sociality in natural selection. Candice Bradley is an interdisciplinary anthropologist with training in sociobiology.
