Oren Harman - Evolutions: Fifteen Myths That Explain Our World

Upcoming Event
Saturday, June 16, 2018 - 3:30pm to 4:30pm

Once, the mysteries of life and death were explained in elaborate tales of gods and supernatural creatures. Today we understand the world through complex technologies and data analysis, practices which can hide the fact that many of the ancient questions about fate and mortality are as open as they ever were. In this unique presentation of modern science, Harmon recasts what we know about cosmology, consciousness, language, and other evolutionary developments, putting our discoveries in the form of stories that awaken some of the old wonder and terror of myths. Harman is professor of the history of science and the Chair of the Program in Science Technology and Society at Bar Ilan University, and the author of books including The Price of Altruism and The Man Who Invented the Chromosome.
