  • In the Light of Evolution
    In the Light of Evolution (English, Hardback) Arthur M. Sackler, National Academy of Sciences

    Humans possess certain unique mental traits. Self-reflection, as well as ethic and aesthetic values, is among them, constituting an essential part of what we call the human condition. The human mental machinery led our species to have a self-awareness but, at the same time, a sense of justice, willing to punish unfair actions even if the consequences of such outrages harm our own interests. Also,...
