Things to think about while reading:
- Why should we care about evolution? Why is it important?
- What does it mean to be human? Did your concept change after reading the book?
- In what way do scientific explanations differ from other ways of knowing? What makes evolutionary biology a science?
- What insights do we gain when we integrate molecular and fossil data?
- Can we look to examples in the natural world to inform our conceptions of what is "normal" or ethical human behavior?
