The Natural History of Human Co-operation

If you have ever been worried by the argument that all human behaviour is ‘genetically determined’, this could be the antidote. Without ever departing from the theory of evolution Pagel (Head of Bioinfomatics at Reading University) argues that art, music, religion and morality have truly constituted what it is to be human. This leads him to a qualified optimism about the possibilities for human co-operation in the future.
