Born again sociobiology

In this talk, Dr John Wilkins will discuss the controversial fields of evolutionary psychology and sociobiology, and how these can be conducted in a scientifically rigorous manner so as to avoid cultural biases and other potential problems.

John Wilkins is a historian and philosopher of science, and an honorary fellow at The University of Melbourne. He has published on topics including evolution, history and philosophy of biology, and the relationship between religion and biology. He blogs at Evolving Thoughts.
