    Inhaltsangabe

    A watershed book that masterfully integrates insights from evolutionary biology, genetics, psychology, economics, and more to explore the development and workings of human societies

    “There is no good reason why human societies should not be described and explained with the same precision and success as the rest of nature.” Thus argues evolutionary psychologist Pascal Boyer in this uniquely innovative book.

    Integrating recent insights from evolutionary biology, genetics, psychology, economics, and other fields, Boyer offers precise models of why humans engage in social behaviors such as forming families, tribes, and nations, or creating gender roles. In fascinating, thought-provoking passages, he explores questions such as: Why is there conflict between groups? Why do people believe low-value information such as rumors? Why are there religions? What is social justice? What explains morality? Boyer provides a new picture of cultural transmission that draws on the pragmatics of human communication, the constructive nature of memory in human brains, and human motivation for group formation and cooperation.

    Incomprehensible

    Perhaps due to their „Philosophes“ tradition, I find frenchmen, when explaining a topic, tend to make simple things complicated and complicated things, well, incomprehensible. The „mind“ is still a quite complicated thing, I find, hence Pascal Boyer’s writing is .... incomprehensible. For me, at least. However, though being a layman myself, as I listened to quite a number of „mind“ books meanwhile, I am not easily inclined to blaming myself for my lack of comprehension. I know, Mr. Boyer teaches at an American university, but still seems to me to be far, far from the level of, e.g., Great Courses professors when it comes to teaching or explaing things such as the „mind“. I tried hard, but gave up and did not finish listening to the book. I bought another Great Courses on a simillar topic, starting today.
