Episode Summary

EDIT
Consilience
AIRED:
Edward O. Wilson, Pellegrino Research Professor Emeritus and Honorary Curator in Entomology at Harvard, presents the annual John M. Prather Lecture in Biology. The boundary between science on one side and the humanities and humanistic social sciences on the other is not an intrinsic epistemological divide but a broad borderland of previously poorly understood causal relationships. The borderland is now being explored, and offers increasing opportunities for collaboration across three great branches of learning. A definition of human nature will be offered and examples from the borderland will be used to illustrate it. Organized by the departments of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology & Molecular and Cellular Biology at Harvard.moreless
