Free Tonight?

"Yes, I share a tailor with Dr Who."

Darwin continues his cultural assault in the run-up to his 200th birthday (this Thursday). A couple of debates tonight should keep the momentum going. From 6pm, Imperial College host Darwin's Sacred Cause: race, emancipation and the quest for human origins. Authors Adrian Desmond and James Moore discuss their book of the same name, which reveals the historical influences that led Darwin to his great thesis. The event is free, but best secure tickets in advance. Meanwhile, over at Kings Place from 7pm, three evolutionary experts debate whether humans are still evolving. Entry costs about a tenner but, this side of necromancing the great Victorian naturalists back to life, a finer panel could scarcely be imagined.
