Mesa redonda

The search for the origins of what makes us human: overcoming thresholds

Defining what makes us human is a transdisciplinary task that attempts to determine the capabilities, abilities and manifestations that can be identified in the record of the past, which will allow us to come closer to giving a scientific answer to this definition. Our advances in Biology, Archaeology and Paleontology blur boundaries and lead us to increasingly remote times in the emergence of the traits that have been used to define us. We invite a dialogue between different researchers of the brain, technology and history that can help us to discern at what moments in our evolutionary record do some of the characteristics of what we call humanity appear.
