Tani Barlow, the George and Nancy Rupp Professor of Humanities and Professor of History at Rice University speaks on, "Instinct and Society." When Li Zehou burst onto the scene during the 1980s ‘culture fever’ he dragged back in altered form a much earlier foundational debate over evolution and instinct theory launched in the new social theory and human science movement during the May Fourth era.  Barlow's general research question now is how society got ontologized a century ago. This lecture was recorded on April 25, 2022.
