Event description: 

How did human culture take on the complexity manifest in all societies today?  Gary Tomlinson adopts a long perspective to answer this question, looking back across the last 500,000 years. Joining capacities of early human perception to mechanisms of cultural and biological evolution, he offers a new model of the emergence of modern humanity.
