Course Description

This course, given by Harry Roegner, an international economist, lepidopterist, and student of Darwinian variation, is based on the findings of a lifetime of traveling the world looking for correlations between latitude and physical/spiritual manifestations. For example, seasonal changes are very common in the midlatitudes but of lesser importance in equatorial regions. Hence, it is not surprising that animal adaptations, such as butterfly colors and fertility, are rather different in the midlatitudes from those in equatorial regions. What is, however, quite surprising is that such latitude effects are even seen in human cultures. For example, winter solstice celebrations to bring back the sun are common in the midlatitudes but much rarer in equatorial regions. This course will reference ancient and modern religions, animal adaptations, and global demographic data. The course challenges status-quo thinking and encourages student interaction.
