Jared Diamond: The World Until Yesterday

When: Thu., April 23, 7-8:30 p.m. 2015

Amidst life’s curve balls, do you find yourself wondering how people handled life’s problems in simpler times? Eastern Washington University’s Carper International Speaker Series — where critical analysis, controversy, and cultural clashes are welcomed — continues by hosting world-renowned author and scientist Jared Diamond, who emphatically answers this question. Years of group studies and a deep love for traditional societies has equipped Diamond to intrigue audiences with his insight into all that we can learn from the past about child rearing, care for the elderly, fitness and conflict resolution. With beautifully interwoven anthropological, sociological and biological evidence in his book The World Until Yesterday, Diamond shows how combining historical societies’ victories with modern society’s struggles can give us the best of both worlds.
