Conference: Human Success: Evolutionary Origins and Ethical Implications

Hugh Desmond has asked me to publicize the following conference at KU Leuven:

Whether in terms of geographic range or ecological dominance, the human species seems to be extraordinarily successful. Yet, how should such claims of extraordinary success be understood? What were the causes of this success, and moreover, what are the ethical implications? On June 10 and 11 at the KU Leuven in Belgium, a conference dedicated to these questions will bring together paleobiologists, evolutionary anthropologists, philosophers of science, and ethicists. Invited speakers include Peter Richerson, Dan McShea, Susan Anton, and Geerat Vermeij. For more information, and the call for papers, see here.
