Ideas: Darwin and After

The Disrupters
In partnership with CBC Radio’s Ideas, a five-part series that explores the roots of modern identity through the ideas of five people who flipped the table of conventional thought.

Darwin and After
Darwin’s ideas about evolution shifted our perspective on the place of humans in the world: we’re not so special, just another life form with a bigger brain and opposable thumbs. What’s been the impact of this depressing news?
