FYS 1016 - Trilobites, Dinos, and Cavemen, OH MY: A History of Life and Humans

Hours: 4
This course will explore the history of life from the primordial soup, through trilobites, dinosaurs and ultimately the evolution of Lucy and Homo sapiens. Special emphasis will be on the evolutionary origin of the unique characters and behaviors that make us “human”. The course will explore the “grandeur in this view of life” and its “forms most beautiful and most wonderful” and how a modern scientific perspective lets us better understand ourselves and what it means to be human.
