The Social Instinct
Tue 4 October, 2022 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm BST
Professor Raihani will illuminate the role of co-operation in the human story: why we live in families, why women experience the menopause, and why we routinely help complete strangers. She will also explore the dark side of co-operation, looking at how co-operation creates victims, where co-operation fails, and why we sometimes cheat.
Professor Raihani will also introduce attendees to other co-operating species, from the pied babblers of the Kalahari to the cleaner fish of the Great Barrier Reef. She will lead us on an exhilarating, far-reaching, and thought-provoking journey through all life on Earth, with profound insights into what makes us human and how our societies work.
