Steve Jones: Is Man Just Another Animal? The View from Genes

Organised by:

SCI's London Group

UCL, London

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.

Synopsis
Many people are alarmed by the discovery that humans share a substantial proportion of their DNA sequence with other creatures, and with primates most of all, for they feel - as did the Victorians after the publication of The Origin of Species - that this brings us down towards their level. To do so is to misunderstand what evolution can say about ourselves; and in this talk I will discuss how we have changed in comparison to our relatives and how, in the end, is largely irrelevant to the question of what makes us human.
