Description - The Inner Eye by Nicholas Humphrey

Human consciousness is often regarded as the last great mystery - a riddle for those committed to a scientific understanding of the world and and our place in it. What is it for and how did it evolve? The Inner Eye provides answers. The focus of the book is the idea that 'the inner eye', or consciousness of the self, is the key to understanding the evolution of intelligence and its relation to social life. It is both a captivating account of a scientist's search for meaning in human affairs and a work of considerable importance to philosophy and psychology.
