Tamás Dávid-Barrett is my next guest on Inside Ideas. Tamás is a behavioural scientist, who asks what traits allow humans to live in large and culturally complex societies. His work focuses on how the structure of social networks change during falling fertility, urbanisation, and migration; as well as how social networks vary over the human life-course. Tamás’s current projects include the origins of inequality regulation; why the behavioural rules between women and men vary so much across cultures; and the evolutionary foundations of sharing behaviour.
The episode with Tamás will be available Tuesday. Meantime, check out his Human Beasts Channel on YouTube. And don’t miss my recent podcasts with the wonderful Jenny Kleeman and fantastic Carolyn Steel.
