Who are we really? Where do we come from and where are we heading? Are we part of nature or do we stand above it? This book deals with the most pressing questions on evolution – knowledgeably and with great lucidity.
Based on the commonplace experiences of young people and adults, renowned biologist Josef H. Reichholf takes us through the story of the genesis of nature and mankind. What makes mankind what it is? What makes us human? We speak different languages, follow different religions, rituals and customs, we have different habits – what’s the common denominator? Why are we different, what do those differences reveal about our origins and what do they mean for the future? In an accessible style, the author combines funda-mental knowledge with astonishing discoveries from cutting-edge research. He takes a glimpse into the future, in which new technologies will connect people all over the world to an even greater degree. Given this growing network, it is more important than ever to understand how innovations come into being and establish themselves in the evolutionary process.
