Course Intro

My name is Kira Dillard.  I am a junior Anthropology major from Scottsdale, Arizona.  I am an only child although I had many, many pets growing up.  I am very interested in the overlap between Anthropology and Biology, specifically the evolution of the brain and behavior and the role their development played in the course of human evolution. 


-What is conscience/morality?  Is it innate?  Is it taught? Can a person exist without it?

 -If behavior is not simply the result of chemical reactions, what other options are there that can explain behavior and the mind?

-  How can the ego be explained scientifically?  Evolutionarily, what is the significance/purpose of the ego?  What part does it play in the survival and success of homo sapiens ?
