What Makes Us Human?

by Edited by Charles Pasternak - £9.99  Oneworld Publications (2007)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781851685196 | ISBN 10: 1851685197

What makes us human?
 
Is is our cognitive abilities, our use of tools, our story-telling, our beliefs, our cuture, our curiosity, or perhaps our ability to cook?
 
To answer this perennial puzzle, Charles Pasternak asks some of the world's most brilliant thinkers to put forward their idea of what divides man from monkey - if anything indeed does? Susan Blackmore, Robin Dunbar, Ian Tattersall, Stephen Oppenheimer, and other world-renowned experts from a broad range of disciplines take us on a fascinating tour of homo sapiens.
 
From maths to music, speech, imitation, soul, and the ability to read minds, What Makes Us Human? considers whether we are half-ape or half-angel, and offers a sweeping exploration of humanity and of human nature.
