Description

Selection from the book On Human Nature (1978) by Edward O. Wilson, read by Jeff Riggenbach. From the Origins of the Human Mind audiobook, 1996. Pulitzer Prize Winning author Edward O. Wilson contributes two of four selections from Harvard University Press in this anthology of important writings on the evolution of human cognition. In clear, non-technical language, the mind's biological and behavioural roots are traced from their primitive beginnings in our ape-like ancestors to the explosive growth of our modern linguistic-based consciousness. The intriguing speculations offered by the authors provide a fascinating account of one of the mysteries of human existence.
