Where People in Poverty Fit in the Human Adventure: Can Darwin and Wresinski Come to Terms? – Dominique Lambert

Violence and the Benevolent Gift: Rethinking Relationships

Round Table: Rethinking Human Relations

Dominique Lambert shows that the vision of human evolution as promoted by the doctrine of Social Darwinisim, in which the fragile, sick, and poor have no place in society, was not actually that of Darwin.

Beginning with Darwinian concepts as revisited by contemporary authors, Dominique Lambert shows that human history is absolutely capable of giving a place and meaning to the vulnerable. Lambert gives us the opportunity to reflect on what characterizes human history on its deepest levels, and shows what it was in Darwin’s thought which touched and deeply motivated the thinking of Joseph Wresinski.
