Understanding our humanity - the essence of who we are - is one of the deepest mysteries and biggest challenges in modern science. Why do we have bad moods? Why are we capable of having such strange dreams? How can metaphors in our language hold such sway on our actions? As we learn more about the mechanisms of human behavior through evolutionary biology, neuroscience, anthropology, and other related fields, we´re discovering just how intriguing the human species is. And while scientists are continually uncovering similarities between our behavior and that of other animals, they´re also finding insights into everything that makes us unique from any other species. Join an acclaimed neurobiologist, award-winning teacher, and MacArthur Foundation ´´genius grant´´ recipient in a series of 12 invigorating lectures that offer a surprising and undeniably fascinating study of what makes you you, journeying to the front lines of scientific research to gain a new perspective on the quirky nature of being ourselves. Professor Sapolsky explores our humanity by investigating mysterious and sometimes even mundane aspects of human behavior, including bad moods, nostalgia, and dreams, packing the lectures with stories of bold experiments and case studies that illuminate the intricacies of our behavior. Thought-provoking, witty, and sometimes myth-shattering, this course is sure to have you thinking about and appreciating your life in novel ways.

A steady course in which something changes into a diverse and unambiguously more composite form can be described as evolution. Evolution is the method by which an organism converts to a more erudite form over time and in retort to its milieu. The Theory of Evolution is presently the most widely held conception of how life reached its present state. Evolution as a biotic mechanism is driven by natural selection. This theory is favored by many researchers to elucidate occurrences in nature, so much so that it is usually presumed as actual in most lessons. ungekürzt. Language: English.
