During this month of commercially-induced LOO-OOOVE, we at Chicago Skeptics are taking a look back to [one of] the books that started what is probably the most heated debate within social and scientific circles to date: the origin of/explanations behind human sexuality.
This month’s selection is The Moral Animal by Robert Wright. (Here’s the Amazon description.)
Since this book is referred to by many as “a great introduction to evolutionary psychology”, we also have the opportunity to glance at and discuss the workings of a branch of science that has sparked a significant amount of controversy within the scientific and social circles, and what the history of this controversy means for future branches of science.
Hope to see you there!
