What Makes Us Human?
From The Publisher:
In What Makes Us Human? some of the world's most brilliant thinkers offer their answers to this perennial puzzle, including Susan Blackmore, Robin Dunbar, Richard Harries, Kenan Malik and Lewis Wolpert. Together they draw on a broad spectrum of disciplines, from anthropology, medicine, and neuroscience, to philosophy, psychology and religion, to ask what makes us distinctively human. Is it our cognitive abilities, our use of tools, our story-telling, our beliefs, our curiosity, our ability to cook, or our culture?
