  Lecture: How Dogs Make Us Human

Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Speaker Thomas Laqueur, University of California-Berkeley, Department of History will give the lecture "How Dogs Make Us Human." This lecture addresses its subject from a variety of perspective ranging from evolutionary cognitive psychology, the history of dogs in western art, and the special place that dogs had in the thinking of Charles Darwin. It offers a historian's answer to the question why dogs have been so important in how humans have thought about themselves. It will not ignore cats.
