TOPIC: "How to Train a Cat: The Evolution of the Human Animal"
Ken Moses embarks on an informal, idiosyncratic personal journey through his experiences with animal cultures and society, finding a continuity with human culture and society. Along the way he'll make side trips to visit Darwin and evolution, autism, reproduction and childbirth, the rodeo and the circus, and several other somehow-relevant areas. His face-to-face experiences with animals often differ from the “conventional wisdom” of anthropologists, psychologists, and religionists, but are supported by recent socio-biological research.
This is the fourth presentation that Ken Moses has done for the Critical Thinkers -- the first was about Public Transportation, which he presented to all four Critical Thinking Clubs along with seven other organizations that requested it; at one of them, he warned about infrastructure hazards only a few hours before the I-35 bridge collapse. The second and third topics were two different editions about the Abuse of the English Language. Ken had an illustrious 40-year career in the theater and overlapped that with a second career in Disability Advocacy and Services; he received awards in both careers.
Breakfast with the presentation is $12. (The restaurant's charge has gone up again.) Presentation alone (with coffee) is $3.
