We do enjoy winning, don’t we?! Do you get more out of it when your team coordinates? What is the dynamic between competition and cooperation? Are our abilities evolved to favor one or the other or are they intrinsically inseparable? That’s the topic for April’s gathering.

D-Cubed, (Discussion and Debate and Dinner) is a monthly gathering hosted alternatively by Jerry Smith and Mark Thoson of the Humanists of MN. This month, Mark will lead the discussion. We meet in person on the first Saturday of the month and do a Zoom version on the following Tuesday. The talks are independent, not continuations so please choose the one that fits your schedule the best.
As usual there are links below to provide context and insight into our discussion. There are a mix of articles and videos this month. Hopefully you will take time to watch and read what you can and bring your perspective on them to our discussion.
