The Moral Animal examines the new science of evolutionary psychology, in which the theories of natural selection are used as tools for understanding human behaviour.
Robert Wright has written extensively for Atlantic Monthly, New Yorker and Time magazine and currently works as a senior editor at The New Republic. His latest book, Non-Zero, is also published by Abacus. He lives in Washington, D.C. with his wife and family.
"The Moral Animal overturns old ways of thinking."
– Independent On Sunday
"This is not a book of breathless reportage from some frontier of science; it is an eye-opening, thought-provoking, spine-tingling, mind- boggling, wish-I-had-thought-of-that sort of science book."
