The Intersection

Folks up in DC have the chance to catch my colleague Dr. Raphael Sagarin tomorrow at AAAS. He’s in town to talk about his new book ‘Natural Security: A Darwinian Approach to a Dangerous World‘:

From observations of nature and studies in evolutionary biology, Dr. Sagarin has drawn some intriguing conclusions that he suggests may have applications to security in human society. Biological organisms have been developing and adapting novel solutions to myriad threats for their own security for over 3.5 billion years. Across that immense span, literally millions of natural features have emerged that keep organisms safe against a broad range of threats. But can we find answers to our own security challenges from the lessons of nature?

Should be an interesting discussion, also featuring Ellen Laipson, President and CEO Henry L. Stimson Center. Details here
