Anthropedia Foundation Co-Hosting 'Man The Hunted' Conference
Date:3/12/2009

Non-profit Charity Promotes Altruism as Key to Man's Evolution and Well-Being

ST. LOUIS, March 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Anthropedia Foundation has teamed with the National Science Foundation, the Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research, and Washington University Center for the Study of Ethics and Human Values to present the conference "Man The Hunted: Sociality, Altruism, and Well-Being." Spanning Thursday, March 12 to Saturday, March 14, "Man The Hunted" includes panels and presentations by leaders in anthropology, psychiatry, ethnography, philosophy, education, biology, and healthcare. The conference highlights man's historical role as prey rather than predator, and human reliance on cooperation, altruism, and sociality for survival and healthy development. The conference will tackle many related questions: How is the negative paradigm of man as predator reflected in current research and institutions? What are the scientific and societal implications of the positive paradigm that man is altruistic? How can we translate theory into practice and have an impact on the community?

The event is co-chaired by Robert Sussman, Ph.D., Professor of Anthropology at Washington University, and Robert Cloninger, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry and Genetics, Director of the Center for the Psychobiology of Personality, and the Center for Well-Being at Washington University. Dr. Cloninger is also the Director for the Anthropedia Institute, the research body of the Anthropedia Foundation.

Dr. Cloninger will co-present "Neurobiology of Human Temperament and Character" with Dr. Sita Kedia, Vice-President of the Anthropedia Foundation. Dr. Kedia received her M.D. from the University of Colorado. Dr. Cloninger will also deliver another presentation, "The Direction of Evolution: Growth toward Self-awareness, Altruism, & Well-Being."
