Description

Please note this event is ZOOM only

This talk will test some of the predictions made by the sex-strike hypothesis of human cultural origins, taking us into the scientific study of symbolic ritual and myth. Central to world mythology is the motif of death followed by rebirth, a concept recurrently associated with the Moon as it waxes and wanes. Across Africa and much of the world, egalitarian hunter-gatherers do not cower in fear of powerful gods. Instead, they celebrate the Trickster, who is a figure of fun.
