A new book by a Charles Sturt University academic that examines Charles Darwin’s conception of the role of psychology in evolution will be launched at a webinar on Friday 7 May.

Darwin’s Psychology: The Theatre of Agency by Emeritus Professor Ben Bradley challenges conventional thinking about Darwin’s conception of the psychological evolution of species.

Professor Bradley is Foundation Professor of Psychology in the Charles Sturt School of Psychology.

His book presents a new Darwin to science, and shows how widely Darwin’s understanding of evolution and agency has been misunderstood and misrepresented in biology and the social sciences.

The Zoom presentation will be open from 6.45pm AEST, with Professor Bradley’s talk to start at 7pm and conclude by 8.30pm.

It is suggested that participants join the webinar 5 to 10 minutes beforehand to ensure connection.

Participants will be on mute during Professor Bradley’s presentation, though they can communicate through the chat function. Questions are welcomed there and more directly when Professor Bradley provides pauses for them.

Join the Zoom meeting: Meeting ID: 869 9342 6021   Passcode: 113248

Darwin’s Psychology: The Theatre of Agency is published by Oxford University Press (October, 2020).

Please note: the first printing of the book Darwin's Psychology: The Theatre of Agency omitted the subtitle ( … The Theatre of Agency). The subtitle will be reinstated on the first reprinting.
