On the basis of his work summarized in the volume «The Evolving Self,» Professor Mihály Csikszentmihalyi will review the history of human evolution from circa two million years ago to the present, focusing on the development of consciousness, or the ability of the human mind to simulate possible courses of action, to create new ideas and objects, and to transcend the material structures in which human life is embedded. The future is ours to make, and we have much to learn, because our mistakes will be increasingly costly with passing year.

After the lecture, Dr. Csíkszentmihályi will sign copies of his three books – “Flow,” “Creativity” and “The Evolving Self” – at the new Moody Center for the Arts.
