Public lecture with Brian D. Farrell, Professor of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, Director of the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies, Harvard University
Can the reconciliation of the arts and sciences inform our understanding of nature and our place in it? Drawing on neurobiological, paleontological, and genetics research, philosophical studies of music and other arts, and our current understanding of the influence of nature on human health, Brian Farrell will suggest an evolutionary framework for integrating these fields, offering new perspectives on human culture and humanity’s role in fostering a productive and sustainable future.
