February 25, 2010
Eighth Annual Paul D. Bartlett, Sr. Lecture – February 25, 2010, at the Linda Hall Library
Did humans become human when they developed the ability to create and use tools or was it when they learned to flambé? Richard Wrangham, author of “Catching Fire: How Cooking Made Us Human,” explores the role of cooking in evolution.
Dr. Wrangham is the Ruth Moore Professor of Biological Anthropology at Harvard University, Curator of Primate Behavioral Biology at the Peabody Museum, and Director of the Kibale Chimpanzee Project in Uganda.
