Yale-NUS: Singapore’s only liberal arts university is a pioneer in many ways, including having a freshman course in critical thinking. As Prof Jerry Coyne’s book “Why Evolution is True” is part of the reading assignment, HumanistSG is delighted to be able to bring Prof Coyne in front of Yale-NUS students.

About the speaker: Jerry A. Coyne is a Professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolution at the University of Chicago. Coyne’s work has been largely concerned with the genetics of species differences, aimed at understanding the evolutionary processes that produce new species. He has written 115 refereed scientific papers and 150 popular articles, book reviews, and columns, as well as a scholarly book about his research area—Speciation, co-authored with H. Allen Orr—and a trade book about the evidence for evolution—Why Evolution is True, a New York Times bestseller. He is an elected member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and a recipient of the 2011 “Emperor Has No Clothes” Award from the Freedom from Religion Foundation as well as the 2015 Richard Dawkins Award from the American Alliance of America.
