The Nature of the City: Lessons from Evolutionary Science
Thursday, October 13, 2011, 7–9 pm
How can urban systems bring out the best in us? Evolutionary biologist David Sloan Wilson explains a unique Darwinian approach in his new book The Neighborhood Project: Using Evolution to Improve My City, One Block at a Time. Join Wilson in conversation with theoretical psychologist and BMW Guggenheim Lab Advisory Committee member Nicholas Humphrey. Learn how we respond to unconscious cues in the built landscape. Share ideas on how we might build a pro-social New York City.
