New Sociology Series in the Evolution Institute’s Scholarly Magazine

See below an announcement about a new series the Evolution Institute’s scholarly magazine:

Dear ASA sections chairs and chair elects,

We are pleased to announce the new sociology series in This View of Life, the Evolution Institute’s online scholarly magazine.  Adding these articles to your summer reading list won’t take your mind off our current global crises, but we guarantee the articles will stimulate some new insights about them. We would be grateful if you could distribute this among your section members. 

Check out our introductory essay with David Sloan Wilson and the first two articles: https://evolution-institute.org/debate-nothing-in-sociology-makes-sense-except-in-the-light-of-evolution/.
