Tribal: Truth And Consequences (eBook)
de Ron Newby
Sobre o livro
Tribal is a word with various meanings but what is not generally acknowledged is that tribal is a genetic survival trait, held over from our ancient ancestors. Ron Newbys latest book is controversial with original thought-provoking ideas and is, at times, witty and amusing. This popular interdisciplinary book examines chimpanzees, bonobos, even plants and the neurosciences for explanations as to why we play havoc not only with ourselves but with the biosphere. Newby argues it is not only our nurturing that influences behavior, but also our vibrant ancient survival genetic traits that influence present day human behavior. The consequences of our tribal natureglobal warming, population explosion and political discord, are the generators of the Anthropocene. Anger, greed, compassion, fear, false memory, bigotry, governance, rationality and free will are a few of topics discussed. This is a philosophical approach to understanding as to why humans are self-inflicting their demise.
