Apes, Power and Sex: Why We Make War Not Love

In2:InThinking Network 2016 Conference Keynote with Dr Amy Parish

Recently, I had the great honor of delivering an In2:InThinking Network  2016 Conference keynote with the internationally acclaimed anthropologist and primatologist, Dr Amy Parish.

In our keynote we ask the question, “why are the most pernicious problems we face, including war, poverty, and social inequality, also the most ubiquitous and resilient?”

The dependable old explanation, “it’s in our genes”, no longer cuts it.

In this keynote for the 15th annual In2:InThinking Network Conference we discuss the myths that keep this notion in place and the scientific evidence the debunks them.
