About this book

In this seminal work Leakey returns to his 1977 work Origins and reflects anew upon what makes us who we really are. He incorporates ideas from philosophy, anthropology, molecular biology and even linguistics to investigate how humans evolved anatomically, and how we acquired the qualities of consciousness and humanity.
