  • Jared Diamond Discusses his Latest Book at the Seattle Town Hall

    April 10, 2014

    April 10th @ 7:30pm
    University of Washington’s Kane Hall, Room 130

    Join Pulitzer-winning author Jared Diamond author at the University of Washington’s Kane Hall on April 10th as he celebrates his newest book, The Third Chimpanzee.

    Third-Chimp-book-jacket-200x300As Diamond’s first foray into illustrated young adult nonfiction, The Third Chimpanzee is both an explosive indictment of human nature and a hopeful case for a better survival.

    At some point during the last 100,000 years, humans began exhibiting traits and behavior that distinguished us from other animals, eventually creating language, art, religion, bicycles, spacecraft, and nuclear weapons–all within a heartbeat of evolutionary time. Now, faced with the threat of nuclear weapons and the effects of climate change, it seems our innate tendencies for violence and invention have led us to a crucial tipping point. Where did these traits come from? Are they part of our species immutable destiny? Or is there hope for our species’ future if we change?
