So You Think You're Human?

A Brief History of Humankind

Felipe Fernandez-Armesto

  • One of the most imaginative historians writing today, combining an astonishing breadth with passionate and exciting story-telling
  • Advances the controversial proposition that we need to rethink our definition of humankind as a matter of urgency in the light of modern advances in science
  • Investigates advances in artificial intelligence and genetics, and asks what these mean for the future of human values, human rights, and the defence of human dignity
  • The first such book to address these big questions in such concise form
