9780553352306: The Ascent of Mind: Ice Age Climates and the Evolution of Intelligence

Daniel C. Dennet's description of this scientist's travelogue: "How did the mind evolve? It takes a scientist of extraordinary breadth who is also a master storyteller to sketch the boundaries of this mega-narrative, and William Calvin has once again given us a feast of new perspectives, enriching the vision of our future as much as our past."
