Human 2.0?

This enquiry is a classroom-friendly version of one I ran for a Philosophy Wranglers online seminar. It introduces students to the beautifully ugly naked mole rat, a burrowing rodent that lives in a colony, rather as bees or ants do. These are all “eusocial” animals that make sacrifices for the good of the colony as a whole. How would our sense of right and wrong be different if we had evolved from eusocial ancestors? Should we embrace the possibility of science making human beings kinder in the future?

It’s in this powerpoint for your convenience: Human 2.0
