Dr. Wayne Bell to Discuss “The Evolution of Beauty” at Easton Library

On Monday, July 23, at 6:30 p.m., in the Easton branch of the Talbot County Free Library, Dr. Wayne Bell of Washington College will talk about “The Evolution of Beauty,” the book by Yale’s Richard Prum that has thrown into question science’s traditional understanding of Darwin’s Theory of Evolution.

In its review of “The Evolution of Beauty,” The New York Times said, “Prum, drawing on decades of study, hundreds of papers, and a lively, literate, and mischievous mind, means to prove an enriched version of Darwin’s sexual selection theory and rescue evolutionary biology from its ‘tedious and limiting adaptationist insistence on the ubiquitous power of natural selection.’ He feels this insistence has given humankind an impoverished, even corrupted view of evolution in general, and in particular of how evolution has shaped sexual relations and human culture.”  The New York Times Book Review named “The Evolution of Beauty” to its list of “The Ten Best Books of 2017.”

Richard Prum is the William Robertson Coe Professor of Ornithology at Yale and Head Curator of Vertebrate Zoology at Yale’s Peabody Museum.  Wayne Bell is a Senior Associate at Washington College’s Center for the Environment and Society; he received his Ph.D. from Harvard.
