Gabriel Tordjman book cover

Gabriel Tordjman’s book published

December 1st, 2020

Gabriel Tordjman’s book was published this summer. The book is entitled: Darwin’s Tea Party; Biological Knowledge, Evolution, Genetics and Human Nature.

The book by the Dawson College Humanities teacher examines how biological knowledge has transformed the planet and reshaped humanity. Using the concept of biological knowledge, the author explores key persons, places, ideas and events that have shaped the world. He shows that while the development of biological knowledge has opened vast new vistas in our understanding of the living world and promises material abundance for some; refracted through the distorting lens of ideology, it has also contributed to great inequality and oppression.
