Florida Darwin Council & the Tampa Bay Coalition of Reason

~ Presents ~
Daniel Dennett
Evolutionary Routes to the Human Mind

“If you can approach the world's complexities, both its glories and its horrors, with an attitude of humble curiosity, acknowledging that however deeply you have seen, you have only scratched the surface, you will find worlds within worlds, beauties you could not heretofore imagine, and your own mundane preoccupations will shrink to proper size, not all that important in the greater scheme of things.” Daniel C. Dennett, in Breaking the Spell

Charles Darwin (1809-1882) conjoined decades of keen field observations with his investigative spirit and the knowledge of his day to produce what some consider the most significant scientific works ever authored. As relevant as ever, Darwin’s worldview offers a basis for understanding – and solving – the 21st century’s ecological crisis.
Borrowing from the words of Theodosius Dobzhansky, the great evolutionary biologist, “Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution.”
