Explaining Humans: what science can teach us about life, love and relationships
  • Online delivery

Diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder at the age of eight, Dr Camilla Pang struggled to understand the world around her. 

Desperate for a solution, Camilla asked her mother if there was an instruction manual for humans that she could consult. But, without the blueprint to life she was hoping for, Camilla began to create her own. Now armed with a PhD in biochemistry, Camilla dismantles our obscure social customs and identifies what it really means to be human using her unique expertise and a language she knows best: science.

Explaining Humans examines life's everyday interactions including decisions, conflict, relationships and etiquette, through a set of scientific principles.

The Plymouth Green and Science Book Club invites you to a discussion of Camilla's book which was the winner of the Royal Society Science Book Prize 2020. 

The meeting is open to all and will be delivered via Zoom at https://plymouth.zoom.us/j/93747644604pwd=THFZMVNlVlVXMkg3NCtGQ0FHaWhiUT09 (passcode: 563274).

Contact Alan Ramage (menzalan@blueyonder.co.uk) for further information.

Plymouth Green and Science Book Club is supported by the University of Plymouth, the Sustainable Earth Institute and the Eden Project.
