January 10-11, 2014
8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
Arnold and Mabel Beckman Center, UC Irvine

Darwinian thinking is now having a major impact in social science, both in the consideration of the consequences of biological and cultural evolution on traditional questions, and in the use of quasi-Darwinian adaptive dynamics in evolutionary game theory. This Darwinian point of view is having a major impact on economics, political science, sociology, anthropology, and demography.
