Featuring His Holiness the Dalai Lama and David Sloan Wilson
The “Beyond Religion and the Darwinian Revolution” panel will explore…
Many spiritual and secular traditions arrive at a common awareness that the world is richly interconnected. With this in mind, it's important to take a systemic view with the needs of the whole system in mind. In practical and evolutionary terms, it’s time to create a cultural and social system that works for everyone and the planet.
This conversation between the Dalai Lama and David Sloan Wilson explores the role of compassion and conscious evolution in healing the divides that separate us, as well as the Dalai Lama’s call, in his book Beyond Religion: Ethics for a Whole World, for a “universal approach to ethics, inner values, and personal integrity…that can transcend religious, cultural, and racial differences.”
They’ll also discuss the central message of David Sloan Wilson's recent book, This View of Life: Completing the Darwinian Revolution, which emphasizes the need for humans to claim their role as “wise managers of evolutionary processes,” and describes how behaviors such as “goodness” can evolve under the right conditions.
