What our being evolved
means for the self
Darwin and Galileo meet in heaven. Prickly and vainglorious Galileo becomes
jealous of simple-hearted Darwin for the fame he won through coming up with
the theory of natural selection. Galileo decides to come up with his own theory
of evolution, and to use Darwin to spread word of it back down on Earth to
win for Galileo new fame for his scientific prowess.
The play is designed to help humanities students develop critical thinking on
issues to do with our having evolved, and to provide a model for a humanities-
based approach to finding meaning in that origin.
