Address300 Washington Ave. SE
DetailsMarlene Zuk, author and University of Minnesota professor of Ecology, Evolution and Behavior, will discuss her book Paleofantasy: What Evolution Really Tells Us about Sex, Diet, and How We Live on Tuesday, April 2 at 4:00 p.m. at the University of Minnesota Bookstore in Coffman Memorial Union, 300 Washington Ave. S.E. Minneapolis. In Paleofantasy, Zuk debunks the belief that humans were at some point perfectly adapted to our environments. The growing believe that our “paleo” or “caveman” ancestors were much healthier, and more environmentally acclimated than us is what Zuk calls a “paleofantasy,” often based on pseudoscience and guessing games rather than on hard investigation. Using an evolutionary perspective, Zuk argues that while evolution can help explain our modern behaviors, it shouldn’t be blindly invoked. Paleofantasy offers a fascinating approach to modern-day life, showing how we differ from our ancestors and why we should or should not emulate them. Zuk will sign copies of her book following the discussion. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, or to order a signed copy visit www.bookstore.umn.edu/genref/authors.html.
