Two evolutionary theorists on the future of Darwinism

Why See Richard Dawkins and Bret Weinstein?

Evolution

Two brilliant thinkers and authors sit down to discuss the current state of Darwinism at this special, one-off Chicago event. Richard Dawkins and Brett Weinstein will tackle whether the discussion around the Theory of Evolution has stalled, and the challenges of teaching it in schools in modern day America.

One of the most famous scientists in the world, Richard Dawkins is best known for his books The Selfish Gene and The God Delusion which have become cornerstones of evolutionary and atheist discourses. Brett Weinstein is an evolutionary theorist who made headlines earlier this year following his resignation from Evergreen State College. While the two men share a lot of common ground, there should be some areas ripe for lively debate.
