Darwin’s Legacy on YouTube

Back in Octo­ber, I men­tioned that Stan­ford had post­ed on iTunes a course called Darwin’s Lega­cy, which helped com­mem­o­rate the 200th anniver­sary of Darwin’s birth and the 150th anniver­sary of the pub­li­ca­tion of On the Ori­gin of Species.

The course brings togeth­er impor­tant schol­ars from across the US who explore Darwin’s lega­cy in fields as diverse as anthro­pol­o­gy, reli­gion, med­i­cine, psy­chol­o­gy, phi­los­o­phy, lit­er­a­ture, and biol­o­gy. It’s now avail­able on YouTube, and we’ve post­ed above a lec­ture by Daniel Den­nett, a lead­ing Amer­i­can philoso­pher who talks about the philo­soph­i­cal impor­tance of Dar­win’s the­o­ry of evo­lu­tion. To watch the com­plete course on YouTube, sim­ply access this playlist. You can also find the course, and many oth­ers like it, list­ed in our col­lec­tion of Free Uni­ver­si­ty Cours­es
