LOCATION: Teleconference Room, Alexander Library, 4th floor, 169 College Avenue
4th Lembersky Conference on Human Evolutionary Studies
Whenever individuals work together toward shared goals, cooperation is the result. This is true whether those individuals are genes, cells, microbes, people, corporations, or nations. Among humans, cooperation occurs at levels ranging from families and friends to communities, markets, corporations, states, and, via both trade and international organizations, the entire world. Despite the ubiquity of cooperation and its importance for the healthy functioning of organisms and societies, only recently has a transdisciplinary science of cooperation begun to emerge. The purpose of this conference is to further the development of a transdisciplinary science of cooperation.
