NHC On the Human

What does it mean to be human? Are we naturally good, or naturally bad? Can we draw any ethical conclusions from an account of our nature? If we achieve the power to change human nature, should we use it? This course will examine recent scientific efforts to answer these questions, especially those based in Darwinian evolutionary theory. Topics include evolutionary psychology, gender, the origin of morality, and the ethics of enhancing human nature.
