ABSTRACT
The article responds to a preceding thematic article in this issue by Hans Mohr titled "Evolutionary Ethics." The author makes the case for a course in socio-cultural human behavior and cultural integration called "Morals II" to complement a course on "Homo Sapiens II" treating humans as evolving cultural animals subject to universal Darwinism as described by ethologist Richard Dawkins.
