Darwin twierdził, że w zmieniającym się środowisku przetrwają najlepiej przystosowani do zmian. Przykłady działania ewolucji wskazują, że zachowania etyczne, w szczególnym przypadku altruistyczne, nie muszą być koniecznym warunkiem zachowania gatunku. Natomiast jednym z fundamentów kultury ludzkiej jest etyka, gdzie za początek namysłu etycznego należałoby przyjąć filozofię sokratejską. Klasyfikacja czynów etycznych zmienia się według niektórych, według innych jest stała. W świetle teorii darwinizmu, warte postawienia jest pytanie, czy kultura oparta na etyce, kierowana pojęciami dobra, jest korzystna dla zachowania gatunku ludzkiego?…

Dental hard tissues reflect these cycles, but unbeknownst to most people is that they also provide longer periodic signals. The genomics of daily biological rhythms has in…

February 10, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Lindisfarne Room, Newcastle University,
Kings Road Centre, Newcastle, NE1 8QB United Kingdom

The suggestion that culture changes in broadly Darwinian ways goes back to Darwin himself, who suggested that his explanation of species change might also apply to language change. However the idea of studying culture in Darwinian terms fell out of favour for most of the 20th-century, after some early anthropologists misused Darwin’s ideas, for instance to defend distinctions between supposedly ‘primitive’ and ‘advanced’ cultures. The idea of cultural Darwinism was revived in the 1970s and 1980s in various forms, the…

Darwin’s Influence on Religion @ Ethical Culture Society of Westchester

February 14, 2016 @ 10:30 am - 11:45 am
Ethical Culture Society,
7 Saxon Wood Rd, White Plains, NY 10801 United States

The relationship between Darwinian evolution and religion is a famously contentious, even hostile one. However, this popular model does not truly get to the heart of the evolution-religion issue. Today we have a well-developed scientific account of religion that sees belief in God arising naturally from mental tools that evolved to serve the survival needs of our earliest ancestors. This poses a much greater challenge for religion than simply having to re-interpret Genesis. This challenge, however, does not negate religion,…
