• Bret Weinstein

    Evolutionary Theorist & Professor at The Evergreen State College

    Dr. Weinstein has spent two decades working on evolutionary trade-offs, and building a conceptual toolkit for understanding adaptive phenomena. He was mentored at UC Santa Cruz by Robert Trivers, and at the University of Michigan by Richard D. Alexander. He has made important discoveries regarding the evolution of telomeres, senescence and cancer as well as the adaptive significance of moral self-sacrifice. He is currently working to uncover the evolutionary meaning of large scale patterns in human history, and to use evolutionary insight in the creation of a blueprint for stable, self-correcting governance.
