Human Evolution: Past, Present, and Future

Scott Solomon, Ph.D.

Who are we? Where do we come from? Where are we heading? These are some of the most fundamental and important questions we know how to ask, and we are constantly learning new ways to answer them. In this series of six lectures, we will consider (1) what evolution is and how it works; (2) what we know about human origins from the fossil record and genetic evidence; (3) the ways in which modernization is affecting our ongoing evolution; and (4) how our evolution may proceed in the future, including the potential effects of gene editing technology (e.g. CRISPR) and space settlement on our evolutionary future.
