Nicholas Humphrey, Professor of Psychology at the New School NY and Senior Research Fellow Nicholas Humphrey
Oxford University Press, 2002 - 366 sider
Nicholas Humphrey's writings about the evolution of the mind have done much to set the agenda for contemporary psychology. Here, in a series of riveting essays, he invites us to 'take another look' at a variety of the central and not-so-central issues: the evolution of consciousness, the nature of the self, multiple personality disorder, the placebo effect, cave art, religious miracles, medieval animal trials, the seductions of dictatorship, and much more.
