Survival of the Friendliest

Dr. Brian Hare, Duke University

August 23, 2023 @ 6:00 pm 7:30 pm

What if the secret to “survival of the fittest” isn’t strength, smarts, or power but rather the ability to connect and cooperate?

Join evolutionary anthropologist and bestselling author Dr. Brian Hare and discover how cooperation and sociability have shaped the success of species like dogs, bonobos, and especially us humans.

With compelling examples from recent research, Dr. Hare will explore the links between friendliness, survival, and evolution. The online talk will be followed by an interactive Q&A and a chance to hang out and discuss big ideas with other curious minds in lively breakout room group chats.

This event is hosted by The Leakey Foundation’s Evolution Exchange (formerly Young Professionals Group), a growing community of science supporters and evolution enthusiasts.
