In addition to providing commentary on the papers submitted by each Celebration participant, Julian Huxley developed possible questions and talking points for each of the five topical panels in advance of the event. Among talking points that Huxley suggested for Panel 5, “Social and Cultural Evolution,” is his own theory of “psychosocial selection in competing ideas, skills, and beliefs.”
