Volume 4 - Biological Evolution
We are happy to bring to your attention the release of volume 4 of Euresis Journal, devoted to the proceedings of the 2012 San Marino Symposium, with the theme "Biological evolution and the nature of Human beings".
Since 2006 the Euresis Association organises a series of annual Symposia at the University of San Marino, devoted to the discussion of fundamental topics in modern science. The themes are taken from across disciplines and chosen based on their relevance and breadth of impact. In some occasions, the Symposia also focused on reflecting about the scientific endevour itself, in an enlightening exercise that invites world-leading scientists and scholars to speak openly about their personal experience of creativity and discovery.
