For Students

Earn either undergraduate or graduate level credit by taking a course instructed by the authors, Paul M. Bingham and Joanne Souza. We explore in detail the new theory of human uniqueness described in Death from a Distance and the Birth of a Humane Universe. We re-examine all the vast repertoire of knowledge from the evolutionary and social sciences from an exciting new perspective. See how the natural and social sciences can be united for the first time - while we learn to think critically together and explore the art of scientific investigation.

Student Testimonials

student "BIO 358 is a course purported to give students an explanation for what it is to be human - the level of insight necessary to view our physical world beyond its mechanical means. The extensive amount of resources provided, level of teaching both in the classroom and beyond, and philosophy used in approaching such a provocative subject is unparalleled relative to most any other college courses and attests to both Instructor Souza and Prof. Bingham's dedication to the knowledge enterprise. The content does a wonderful job of adding profound insight to the mundane aspects of our world - meaning to the facets of our biology that at first seem overwhelmingly complex. The fact that the content integrates a variety of disciplines makes it a transferable subject to people of all backgrounds and educational platforms, and most notably makes it a course that students owe it to themselves to take." - Michael Dahan
