Welcome Back Yalies!
Welcome back to a new semester! We certainly hope your holidays – whatever you celebrate – have been great and you’re rested up for the Spring.
We have a wide variety of events planned for the next few months. We will be collaborating on several events with a number of the other religious and worldview communities and non-profits on campus, for instance, a discussion co-hosted with Buddhist Life at Yale on Naturalistic Theories of Karma and Ethics.
We are also planning a range of Yale Humanist academic, social, and service events. Make sure to keep in touch, check out our Events Calendar, and email us anytime with any questions you might have. For more details, stay tuned.
New Event with Frans de Waal & Paul Bloom
Professor Frans de Waal of Emory University will be lecturing on Ethics, Humanism and Non-Theism, with a discussion afterwards with Yale Professor of Psychology Paul Bloom. A title and location will be announced soon.
Professor Frans de Waal is professor of Neuroscience & Animal Behavior at Emory and Director of the Yirkes National Primate Research Center. He is the recent author of The Bonobo and the Atheist: In Search of Humanism Among the Primates as well as numerous other books. In 2007 he was named among TIME Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the Scientists & Thinkers category.
Professor Paul Bloom is professor of Psychology and Cognitive Science at Yale. He is also on the Faculty Board of Advisers for the YHC. His broad research interests span across topics in morality, religion, fiction, and art and he is the past-president of the Society for Philosophy and Psychology. He is the author of the recent book Just Babies: The Origins of Good and Evil and six other books.
Mark your calendars and keep in touch for further updates. This event will take place on the Yale University Campus in New Haven and is open to the public.
