What it means to be human

Panel discussion chaired by Sir Paul Nurse PRS with Professor Colin Blakemore FRS, Professor Robin Dunbar FBA, Professor Ruth Mace FBA and Professor Mark Pagel FRS.


What does it mean to be human, and what makes us so? Does our brain, how we evolved, how we communicate, or how we interact make us human? Are we really so different from the other animals?

An exploration of the boundaries of human nature, chaired by Sir Paul Nurse PRS, with four eminent panellists – neuroscientist Professor Colin Blakemore FRS, evolutionary psychologist Professor Robin Dunbar FBA, evolutionary anthropologist Professor Ruth Mace FBA, and evolutionary biologist Professor Mark Pagel FRS - addressing from their own perspectives ‘what it means to be human’.

Free admission – no ticket or advance booking required. Doors open at 6.00pm and seats will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
