TEDxOU - Kyle Harper - The Science Of Deep History : The Case Of Monogamy

Kyle Harper's intellectual pursuits are wide-ranging, from the history of slavery in the ancient world to the development of Christian notions of marriage and family and how law and justice in Greece and Rome continue to shape western legal systems today. Through his studies and research, one truth has crystallized for Harper: that an authentic and nuanced understanding of the United States as a nation, and in particular its constitutional founding, must be grounded in an understanding of history and philosophy from the ancient world to the present. n Edmond-native, Kyle Harper graduated summa cum laude with a degree in Letters from OU in 2001. After pursuing his Master's and Ph.D. In History at Harvard University, Kyle returned to his home state in 2009 to become the Director of the Institute for the American Constitutional Heritage and Assistant Professor of Classics and Letters at the University of Oklahoma. He is a specialist on Roman History, with particular interests in long-term economic and social history and the possibility for integrating biological approaches to human behavior and human sociality into the study of the deep human past. His books include "Slavery in the Late Roman World" and "From Shame to Sin: Christianity and the Making of Western Sexuality."
