Below is a list of possible readings for the first paper. Please review your writing syllabus for the mechanics of this process. I encourage you to search out your own article on a relevant topic. A good place to begin is the Bay College Library's periodical stacks, where you can browse BioScience, Science, Nature, Scientific American, or The Scientist. Generally, I will want to see the full citation, but a Xerox copy of the article is even better. All readings are on reserve in the Bay College Library. If you chose to find your own article, please OK it with me before you proceed.
The first six items come from the book The Third Chimpanzee: The Evolution and Future of the Human Animal by Jared Diamond, published in 1992 by Harper Collins. The second six come from Diamond’s book Why is Sex Fun? The Evolution of Human Sexuality, published in 1997 by Basic Books. In addition to being on reserve in the Bay College Library, copies are also available for purchase at the bookstore. If you choose a reading from one of these books, you will find reading the introductory material and the first chapters very helpful in understanding Diamond’s perspective. I encourage you to read much more!
