      Join biologist Nathan H. Lents for a discussion of his book, Not So Different: Finding Human Nature in Animals. Through a mix of colorful reporting and rigorous scientific research, Lents describes the exciting strides scientists have made in decoding animal behavior. Whether Lents is discussing love, grief, greed, or envy, he provides ample evidence that animals have a rich inner life. Lents marshals evidence from psychology, evolutionary biology, cognitive science, anthropology, and ethology to further advance this work and to drive home the truth that we are distinguished from animals only in degree, not in kind.

      Following the lecture, Proffesor Lents will sign books. A limited number are available for purchase on-site.
