Description - The Chosen Primate by Adam Kuper
The great debates about human origins, cultural history and human nature confront us with two opposing images of human beings. One view emphasizes biology, the other emphasizes culture as the foundation of human behaviour. In "The Chosen Primate", Adam Kuper reframes these debates and reconsiders the fundamental questions of anthropology. Balancing biological and cultural perspectives, Kuper reviews our beliefs about human origins, the history of human culture, genes and intelligence, the nature of the gender difference, and the foundations of human politics.
