Reimagining Biology
Historical shifts in seeing and thinking about our fellow organisms.
Joining two mid-length films on significant historical developments in scientific thought, this program examines the lenses through which we view biology. First, we'll delve into the innovations of Anton van Leeuwenhoek that first opened the microscopic world to captivated eyes in the 1670s. Then, jumping three centuries forward, we'll come to Niles Eldridge, who in 1972, proposed, along with Stephen J. Gould, the punctuated equilibrium refinement of evolutionary theory, launching a debate that continues to this day. In between, shorter stops for Lynn Margulis and Ernst Haeckel meet cutting edge biological visualization bringing us right up to the present.

Tickets are $8 in advance and $12 at the door.
