Harnessing Evolution - with Bret Weinstein | Virtual Futures Salon

Virtual Futures presents a special event with evolutionary biologist Bret Weinstein on how we might take human evolution out of autopilot, and the new tension this may cause between science and politics.

Bret Weinstein has spent two decades advancing the field of evolutionary biology. He has made important discoveries regarding the evolution of cancer, senescence, and the adaptive significance of moral self-sacrifice. He is currently working to uncover the evolutionary meaning of large-scale patterns in human history, and applying evolutionary insight in the quest to prototype a liberating, sustainable anti-fragile governance structure for humanity’s next phase.
