    The period of 250,000 years is an instant in geological time, but during that time period the human race has gone from a marginal species whose extinction was highly likely to the dominant species on earth. We will read a recent book by Joseph Henrich entitled "The Secret of our Success" to seek an understanding of the factors that have led to our species's success. Students should borrow or purchase the book for class.
