Post-Darwinian Societies Seminar

CHAIRE HOOVER Louvain-La-Neuve

Organized by Charles Pence (CEFISES ISP) and Gregory Ponthiere (ETES ISP)

The goal of the Post-Darwinian Societies Seminar is to bring together researchers from various disciplines – including, but not limited to, philosophy, social sciences, economics, history and biology – who all work on evolutionary dynamics and selection effects. Dialogues between different scientific disciplines can contribute to the identification of new epistemological challenges for evolutionary theories, as well as to the emergence of new normative perspectives for the ethical foundation of the Welfare State.

Each seminar is online (via TEAMS) and is scheduled on Tuesday 16.30-17.30
