Our understanding of human evolution is traced from classical Greek
philosophy, to the modern synthesis, to socioecology.  Epistemology from
Plato to Popper is related to the human fossil record.  Four labs allow
students to examine fossil primates and fossil humans first-hand to gain
an in-depth familiarity with every stage of human evolution.  Ecology,
subsistence strategy, and functional anatomy are emphasized.
