About this title

Synopsis:

Do our genes determine our behavior? Do humans occupy a unique position in evolution? To clarify these provoking questions, the author takes the reader on an ambitious and entertaining journey through a variety of scientific disciplines. In doing so, he creates an image of human evolution that argues that our entire individual knowledge is determined - to the smallest detail - by phylogeny. A provoking and controversial analysis of the theory of our inability to learn something new and of the extent to which our behavior is determined by our genes.

From the Inside Flap:

Biological evolution works according to the simple principle of differential reproduction: the varying rate of procreation of autonomous individuals. For this purpose, the necessary variation in the "equipment" of different individuals is derived from random changes, the genetic mutations of the underlying hereditary information. The present book documents for the first time that — and in particular why — this simple principle is also unreservedly applicable to the human species. The result is a picture of human evolution which says that even our individual knowledge is determined down to the smallest detail by phylogeny.
