Black Holes, Beakers, and Books: Sex at Dawn

Sunday, November 24, 2013 | Other Dates  
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Are you interested in exploring the vast mysteries of the cosmos, understanding human evolutionary history or talking about the long-term future of the planet earth? These topics and more will be discussed in Black Holes, Beakers, and Books, a book club that reads and discusses popular science books published within the last five years.

Join us for a discussion of Sex at Dawn: The Prehistoric Origins of Modern Sexuality by Christopher Ryan. Monogamy and its historical, sociological, and anthropological origins are re-examined by this husband-and-wife author team. Not without controversy, they tackle such questions as: Have humans always been monogamous, or did we evolve toward that state? How reliable is evolutionary psychology on the topic of human sexuality? Why might older married men choose adultery despite their best efforts to be faithful?
