A SPECTATOR BOOK OF THE YEAR 2022 A thrilling deep-dive through our evolutionary past, and a witty and learned commentary on why we are the way we are - and what wisdom we ve lost along the way Cal Flynn, author of Islands of Abandonment A wild ride: brave, outrageous, hilarious, helpful and urgent ... essential reading Merlin Sheldrake, author of Entangled Lives What kind of creature is a human? If we don t know what we are, how can we know how to act? Charles Foster sets out to understand what a human is, inhabiting the sensory worlds of humans at three pivotal moments in our history. Foster begins his quest with his son in a Derbyshire wood, trying to find a way of experiencing the world that recognises the deep expanse of time when we understood ourselves as hunter-gatherers, and when modern consciousness was first ignited. From there he travels to the Neolithic, a way of being defined by fences, farms, sky gods and slaughterhouses, and finally to the Enlightenment, when we decided that the universe was a machine and we were soulless cogs within it.
