Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub


Nicholas Humphrey’s writings about the evolution of the mind have done much to set the agenda for contemporary psychology. Here, in a series of riveting essays, he invites us to "take another look" at a variety of the central and not-so-central issues: the evolution of consciousness, the nature of the self, multiple personality disorder, the placebo effect, cave art, religious miracles, mediaeval animal trials, the seductions of dictatorship, and much more.

"Nicholas Humphrey writes so elegantly, he turns thinking into a positive pleasure." Richard Dawkins
