David Sloan Wilson with Nick Hanauer

Much-lauded evolutionary biologist David Sloan Wilson, a SUNY Distinguished Professor of Biology and Anthropology at Binghamton University, and the author of such books as Evolution for Everyone, The Neighborhood Project, Does Altruism Exist?, and Darwin’s Cathedral, is here with his newest work, This View of Life: Completing the Darwinian Revolution (Pantheon).

“David Sloan Wilson has long been one of the most visionary and trail-blazing evolutionary biologists around, forcing the field to recognize that evolutionary change occurs from far more than selection solely at the level of the gene. In This View of Life, he explores the various surprising things that ‘evolution’ is and isn’t, and its relevance to everything from everyday life to global policy decisions. It’s thick with ideas and insights, written in a graceful, accessible style.” —Robert Sapolsky.

Joining David Sloan Wilson in conversation onstage will be Nick Hanauer, who is, among other things, founder of Civic Ventures.

Co-presented by TOWN HALL SCIENCE Series, CIVIC VENTURES, and ELLIOTT BAY BOOK COMPANY. Tickets and more information here.
