Summary
  • "A ... exploration of how humans evolved to develop reason, consciousness, and free will"--Amazon.com
  • "Detailing our biological trajectory, Miller shows how we became the only species that could produce Mozart, da Vinci, and Darwin himself. A proper understanding of evolution, he says, reveals humankind in its glorious uniqueness--one foot planted firmly among all of the creatures we've evolved alongside, and the other in the special place of self-awareness and understanding that we alone occupy in the universe." -- Publisher's description
