cooking? Is it because we are social, scientific,

or spiritual? Exploring the true nature of human

nature, What Makes us Human? sheds new

light on how and why our ancestors produced

such clever, talented, and unlikely progeny.

With contributions by Susan Blackmore, Robin

Dunbar, Stephen Oppenheimer, Ian Tattersall, and
