A Foot in the River

Why Our Lives Change — and the Limits of Evolution

Felipe Fernández-Armesto

  • Why does human culture vary so radically from place to place and change at such a bewildering pace?
  • Felipe Fernández-Armesto offers a radical answer to this fundamental question of human history — and speculates on what it might mean for our future
  • Combines insights from a huge range of disciplines, including history, biology, anthropology, archaeology, philosophy, sociology, ethology, zoology, primatology, psychology, linguistics, the cognitive sciences, and business studies
  • A revolutionary book that challenges scientistic assumptions about culture and proposes a new explanation of how and why cultural change happens
