Description

Science Day at Mundelein Seminary

What Makes Us Human? Insights from Studies of Primates and Other Animals

As evolutionary knowledge continues to advance, the question of what makes humans unique from other species becomes increasingly fascinating and important to our understanding of human decision-making, motivation, and psychology.

Please join us for a free lecture by Robert C. O'Malley, Ph.D., followed by breakout discussion sessions on the spiritual aspects of this topic led by seminarians studying at Mundelein Seminary. The event also includes lunch following the discussion.

Dr. O'Malley is a postdoctoral research associate at the Center for the Advanced Study of Human Paleobiology at the George Washington University. He is also the project director for the Dialogue on Science, Ethics, and Religion Program at the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

This event is free and open to the public and suitable for high school-aged audiences and above. Youth groups must have two adults for every eight youth attendees, per VIRTUS regulations. If registering a group, please only register once and reserve tickets for the total number in your group.

When registering, please indicate if you will be staying for the lunch discussion or just attending the lecture by reserving the corresponding ticket. Please RSVP by March 1 at noon.
