Dr. David Sloan Wilson will discuss how the newly declared geological epoch—the Anthropocene—based on the dominant impact of humans on the planet, was foreseen by the scientist-priest Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. Chardin was ahead of his time by regarding humans as not just another species but a new evolutionary process. Wilson will show how modern evolutionary science is catching up with Chardin’s vision. Wilson is one of the world’s foremost evolutionary thinkers, a gifted communicator about evolution to the general public, SUNY Distinguished Professor of Biology and Anthropology at Binghamton University in New York, and President of the Evolution Institute.
