Non-fiction book “Being Human – Learning from Evolution for the Future” – Culture

Hear, hear: “Today we are fortunate to be able to explain, on a scientific basis, for the first time in human history, what is going wrong with humans. We live an existence in a state of emergency.” – “Once upon a time, we sat around a fire with one or two dozen people, listened and told stories, laughed together, and continued to tell stories. Today, it’s not uncommon for every family member to sit in their room and use their own gadget to fob off surrogates.” – “It is the very essence of being human that everything is currently pushing back.” This is what primate researcher Carel van Schaik and science author Kai Michel write in their new book “Being Human”.
