    Who needs Darwin? The relevance of evolutionary theory to the social
    Date: Wednesday 20 June 2001
    Time: 6:00-7:30 pm
    Venue: Old Theatre
    Speakers: Anthony Giddens in debate with W G Runciman
    Chair: Nicholas Humphrey, LSE

    Two of the world's leading sociologists square off about Darwin: Runciman
    arguing that to ignore evolutionary ideas is to relegate sociology to a
    scientific backwater, Giddens that these ideas are and will remain
    irrelevant to sociology's true concerns.

    Anthony Giddens is Director of LSE. He is the author of 34 books, which have
    been translated into 35 languages.

    W G Runciman is Senior Research Fellow in Sociology at Trinity College,
    Cambridge and President-elect of the British Academy. He holds honorary
    degrees from Oxford, Edinburgh, and York. His publications include Relative
    Deprivation and Social Justice (Ashgate, 1993), and A Treatise on Social
    Theory (Cambridge Uni Press, 1983).

    This lecture is free and open to all, no ticket is required. For further
