Plenary / Panel
in englischer Sprache


Nobel Laureate for Physics; Professor of Theoretical Physics, Spinoza Institute, Utrecht University Abstract
The Great adventures of modern science

The most extraordinary results in modern science are achieved when nations join forces in big and adventurous projects. Astronomers are extending their view further away in space and time than ever before, while particle physicists are peering deeper into the atom and what it is made of. Esoteric phenomena such as wavelike behavior of the gravitational force will soon be investigated, while new sources of energy such as nuclear fusion are brought closer to reality. In the mean time biologists are unraveling the secrets of life, and advances in medicine are lengthening and comforting our life.
Professor of Mathematics and Biology, Harvard University, Cambridge Abstract
 Evolution of cooperation

Darwinian evolution is based on competition and survival of the fittest. It does not easily account for altruistic behavior. Yet many animals, especially humans, engage in cooperative interactions. I will present models and games illuminating the mechanics of cooperation. I propose that cooperation is for evolution as fundamental as natural selection. Whenever life had to solve a major problem, cooperation was involved. In the human species, the interplay between cooperation and communication led to the emergence of cultural evolution. Indirect reciprocity is arguably the single most important selective force that shaped human intelligence.
