The Genius of Charles Darwin with the Experts
When I was at university there was much emphasis in my introductory biology class on evolution and the findings of Darwin heavily influenced the curriculum. When I found out that Quasar Expeditions was hosting a two Galapagos itineraries led by Steven Pinker and Richard Dawkins, I was quite impressed. In fact, I headed to YouTube and found a really nerdy science conversation where Richard Dawkins interviews Steven Pinker for “The Genius of Charles Darwin“, the Channel 4 UK TV program which won British Broadcasting Awards’ “Best Documentary Series” of 2008.
If you want to get a head start on learning what these two experts have to offer, go to YouTube and check out some of their interviews and get schooled.
Galapagos Cruises with Steve Pinker or Richard Dawkins
Imagine sailing with either of these two gentlemen – this is really an incredible opportunity.
9 – 19 March 2017
American philosopher, novelist and recipient of the National Humanities Award by President Obama for ‘bringing philosophy into conversation with culture’, Rebecca Goldstein joins Steven Pinker, pre-eminent psychologist, Harvard professor and linguist, to follow in the footsteps of Charles Darwin. On this trip, passengers will get to observe the clear evolutionary path displayed by the vivid wildlife on these unspoiled islands. The tour highlights the archipelago’s most interesting habitants including the blue-footed boobies, Galapagos penguins, giant tortoises and flightless cormorants with narrative from two of today’s most important thinkers – a rare privilege. Pinker will deliver informative lectures and insightful thoughts on all the Galapagos has to offer aboard Quasar Expedition’s 32 passenger M/V Evolution yacht.
7 – 17 December 2017, and 14 – 24 December 2017
Alongside Richard Dawkins, one of the world’s foremost evolutionary biologists and Fellow of the Royal Society, spend the days amidst an abundance of colorful wildlife. Vibrant yellow iguanas dot the rocks of Dragon Hill whilst blush-pink flamingos balance in the salt water lagoon of Santa Cruz Island and great frigate birds flash their red neck pouches in the hope of attracting a mate. Explore the various landscapes of seven different islands with Dawkins; from the black hardened lava flow of the volcanic Sullivan Bay to the green algae covered floor of Tagus Cove, this archipelago showcases the endless diversity of nature. Aboard The M/V Evolution yacht, Richard Dawkins will be escorting excursions during the 8 day – 7-night itinerary and giving lectures aboard the boutique vessel.
