World's top minds to celebrate 'the birth and life of beginnings'
Date:2/26/2009

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- For two weeks in March, some of the greatest names in science and the humanities will come to Tallahassee to take part in public discussions on how fundamental discoveries in science, religion, philosophy, history and the arts have shaped our understanding of life and civilization -- and our grasp of what lies ahead.

Titled "Origins '09: Celebrating the Birth & Life of Beginnings," this one-of-a-kind program was organized by the Office of Research at The Florida State University. It will celebrate 2009 as the Year of Science, a national designation inspired by the 200th birthday of naturalist Charles Darwin earlier this year. "Origins '09" will extend well beyond Darwin and his seminal 1859 work "On the Origin of Species," however, to take a broader look at various advances in science and the humanities and how they have helped shape modern society.

Two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning author and world-renowned biologist E.O. Wilson will be among the headliners for the program, which runs from March 17 to March 28. Scholars credit Wilson's groundbreaking research, original thinking and graceful popular writing with having irrevocably changed the way people think of nature and humanity's place in it. Other renowned scholars visiting Tallahassee include world-famous anthropologist Don Johanson, a co-discoverer of "Lucy," the 3.2-million-year-old skeleton that is recognized as the most famous human predecessor ever found.

Visit www.fsu.edu for a complete schedule of events. All events are free and open to the public except the March 28 tribute to the origins of jazz.

"We're delighted to be promoting a better understanding of science and scholarship," said Kirby Kemper, vice president for Research and Robert O. Lawton Professor of Physics at Florida State. "This outreach effort truly offers something for anyone interested in hearing what some of the world's finest scholars have to say about the history and evolu
