April 16, 2012
On February 20, 2009, the Center for Inquiry – Transnational in Amherst, New York, presented a lecture by philosopher Lee Nisbet. Its title: “Sex and Love in the Twenty-first Century: An Evolutionary Perspective.”
In the modernist world of today and tomorrow, sex and love are increasingly desperate to find one another. On Professor Nisbet’s view, Darwin explains why.
Lee Nisbet is professor of humanities at Medaille College in Buffalo, New York. He is a past recipient of the prestigious John Dewey Senior Research Fellowship and the author of two anthologies dealing with gun violence and gun control issues and numerous articles in both scholarly and mass circulation publications. He is currently working on a volume dealing with the sex-gender-difference debate in the United States.
