Jared Diamond Talks Evolution and the Future of Humanity

In his 1991 book The Third Chimpanzee, Pulitzer Prize winning author Jared Diamond explores how humans fit among other animal species and also what sets us apart. He explains how we have evolved in our behaviors to perpetuate our genes to future generations, how and why we developed language, culture, and art, and what the future holds for the human race given our evolutionary past. The Third Chimpanzee has been newly reissued for young adults in April 2014.

Uprising host Sonali Kolhatkar spoke with Prof. Diamond in his Los Angeles home about the book. Watch a video of the interview here:
