Beast and Man: The Roots of Human Nature (Routledge Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Philosophers have traditionally concentrated on the qualities that make human beings different from other species. In "Beast and Man" Mary Midgley, one of our foremost intellectuals, stresses continuities. What makes people tick? Largely, she asserts, the same things as animals. She tells us humans are rather more like other animals than we previously allowed ourselves to believe, and reminds us just how primitive we are in comparison to the sophistication of many animals. A veritable classic for our age, "Beast and Man" has helped change the way we think about ourselves and the world in which we live.

Synopsis:

Philosophers have traditionally concentrated on the qualities that make human beings different from other species. In "Beast and Man" Mary Midgley stresses continuities.
