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 "I took Bio 358 during my junior year and I truly regret not having enrolled in it sooner. I am a Sociology and Biochemistry double major, which to me felt like the two farthest disciplines offered at Stony Brook. This course showed me that they are not because it manages to incorporate topics in both the hard and soft sciences. It is an incredible class. I received knowledge of not what to think but rather how to think. The topics covered are fascinating and Professor Paul Bingham's lectures inspire you to think outside the box. Furthermore, you are encouraged to share your opinions on the issues at hand. It is a large course but it is the only class where the size takes advantage of so many thinking minds. One of the most important things you learn is that human uniqueness lies in our ability to learn from non-kin, and that is exactly what you practice in the class; everybody is given the chance to learn from everyone else." - Daniela Doneva
