A 3-part lecture series by Peter Ward, Professor of Biology and Earth and Space Sciences, University of Washington
Part 1: "Designs on Life."
Beginning with various definitions of life and a brief history of how life arose and evolved on Earth, the first lecture will consider the diversity of possible life, basic precepts of Darwin's theory of evolution and the theory's battles with creationism, and finally how life is a series of biological compromises superimposed on historical contingencies and structural constraints.
