HNSM 366 - Darwinian Thinking Across Disciplines

3 hours
What do slime mold, honeycombs, morning sickness, and free will have in common?  All of them are evolutionary puzzles, phenomena that at first seem to challenge evolutionary theory but that on deeper investigation are illuminated by evolutionary thinking. This seminar will explore what it might mean to see all of human knowledge through the lens of Darwinian thinking. Students will use insights from evolutionary science to explore topics in their own disciplines and, drawing on one another’s disciplinary knowledge and expertise, will develop proposals for interdisciplinary research or social action projects.
