Butler had intended Life and Habit to be an original contribution to evolutionary theory, and had already written most of it when a friend alerted him to the existence of Mivart's work. After reading Mivart, Butler went back to the Origin of Species, where he noticed Darwin's dismissal of ?the well-known doctrine of inherited habit as advanced by Lamarck'. Remarkably, this was the first Butler had...
Taking pleasure in one's own thoughts and experiencing joy at common activities are the major themes of this volume.

In this engaging exploration, archaeologist Ian Hodder departs from the two prevailing modes of thought about human evolution: the older idea of constant advancement toward a civilized ideal and the newer one of a directionless process of natural selection. Instead, he proposes a theory of human evolution and history based on "entanglement," the ever-increasing mutual dependency between humans and...
