What it Means to Be Human

Online in five parts, a fascinating panel discussion about what it is to be human, touching on cognitive science, philosophy, genetics, psychology, culture, linguistics, and more. Host Charlie Rose was also adept at assembling some of these same scientists (with others) for a special series on his TV show, here and here. Hat tip to the excellent new Law and Neuroscience Blog and @lawneuro.
