[LincolnTalk] Bemis Lecture: The Evolution of Cooperation, Sunday, February 9, 4PM

Ruth Rothstein
Hi everyone,

There's an upcoming Bemis Lecture on Sunday, February 9. Info is below and in attached flyer. (Not sure if attachments work on the list.) More town publicity to come.

Sunday, February 9, at 4 PM in Bemis Hall, "The Evolution of Cooperation"

Lincoln resident, Martin A. Nowak, one of the world’s experts on evolution and game theory, will discuss—

  • why cooperation, not competition, has always been the key to the evolution of complexity.
  • the mysteries of cooperation, from the rise of multicellular life to Good Samaritans, and from cancer treatment to the success of large companies.
  • how cooperation, not competition, is the defining human trait.

Nowak is Professor of Biology and of Mathematics at Harvard University and Director of the Program for Evolutionary Dynamics. He is the recipient of numerous prizes including the Weldon Memorial Prize of Oxford University, the David Starr Jordan Prize of Stanford University, and the Akira Okubo Prize of the Society for Mathematical Biology.
