What is the future of human evolution? Scott Solomon, Ph.D., biologist and writer, reviews our evolutionary past, examining the ways in which we are continuing to evolve and considering our future as a species. This course draws on research from fields as diverse as genetics, demography, psychology, microbiology and medicine. We explore questions such as how existing technology and modern medicine affect natural selection and consider how future developments—such as germline gene editing and space colonization—may affect the ultimate fate of Homo sapiens.
