πŸ“™ Mind the Gap: Tracing the Origins of Human Universals by Peter M. Kappeler, Joan S. Silk, Judith M. Burkart, Carel P. van Schaik (auth.), Peter M. Kappeler, Joan Silk (eds.) β€” epub download


What makes us human? What made us become the way we are? One way to answer these questions is to identify the traits that all humans share, traits that are universal features of all human societies. Another way to do so is to ask how humans differ from other species, particularly from our closest relatives, the nonhuman primates. The contributors to this book pursue both approaches, in an effort to understand how evolution has shaped modern human behavior and societies.
