Celia Deane-Drummond: The Lost Soul of Early Hominins

This lecture addresses several recent archaeological discoveries about early hominins, discoveries that help us think theologically about their probable inner mental world. One such mental feature that likely arose in deep evolutionary time is humility, the ability to exercise self-constraint in the context of a community of others. Deane-Drummond addresses what humility means in biblical terms and compares this with humility as discussed in the work of medieval theologian Thomas Aquinas.
