Darwin on Mind, Ethics, and Animals

22 October 2018 by Charles cpencepermalink

Sorry for the continued rarity of content here as things are still settling down from the big move to Europe. But for the moment, I was given the opportunity to talk in the GRICE seminar here at UCLouvain (broadly on the topic of the ecological crisis, but this year more narrowly focused on ethics and the human-animal relationship).

This isn’t exactly my usual take on Darwin, but it was a great opportunity to work on a variety of texts that I don’t normally engage with – especially Darwin’s Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals, and some more obscure (to me, at least) bits of the Descent of Man.
