Cells to Civilization - Book Discussion

We'll discuss the book Cells to Civilizations: The Principles of Change That Shape Life by Enrico Coen. "Coen tells a story rich with genes, embryos, neurons, and fascinating discoveries. He examines the development of the zebra, the adaptations of seaweed, the cave paintings of Lascaux, and the formulations of Alan Turing. He explores how dogs make predictions, how weeds tell the time of day, and how our brains distinguish a Modigliani from a Rembrandt. Locating commonalities in important findings, Coen gives readers a deeper understanding of key transformations and provides a bold portrait for how science both frames and is framed by human culture." (Barnes and Noble, book overview)

    I won't have the book done by then. Life's been a little too hectic!

      Hi Kimberly, well we're having new carpet installed in library that evening so I needed to move it. The good news is you have another week. :) And please don't feel you have to read it all to join us.
