Beckman-Brown Lecture on Interdisciplinary Science

Professor Nicholas Christakis, Yale University

His virtual talk is titled, "Blueprint: The Evolutionary Origins of a Good Society." Drawing on advances in social science, evolutionary biology, genetics, neuroscience, and network science, Christakis will discuss how and why evolution has placed us on a humane path — and how we are united by our common humanity.

The annual Beckman-Brown Lecture on Interdisciplinary Science honors Dr. Arnold O. Beckman, the founder of the Institute, and Dr. Theodore “Ted” Brown, the founding director. The series is funded by a gift from the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation. Learn more.
