This stunningly illustrated book provides new understanding of human behavior based on our almost identical genetic heritage.

However much we may think we have evolved from our animal ancestors, Desmond Morris shows that our instinct and behavior are still rooted in our animal past. full-color and 10 black-and-white photographs/5. The complex idea of species has evolved over time, yet its meaning is far from resolved.

This comprehensive work takes a fresh look at an idea central to the field of biology by tracing its history from antiquity to today. John S. Wilkins explores the essentialist view, a staple of logic from Plato and Aristotle through the Middle Ages to fairly recent times, and considers the.

Information obtained from early-human fossils and archaeological remains suggests that there were 15 to 20 different species. Homo sapiens rules the world because it is the only animal that can believe in things that exist purely in its own imagination, such as gods, states, money and human rights.
