Through a Glass Brightly

Using Science to See Our Species as We Really Are

David P. Barash

  • Explores major paradigm shifts that involve diminishment of humanity's self-image, and which have therefore been strongly resisted e.g., heliocentric astronomy, the "creation" of human beings by evolution
  • Reassesses certain previously held notions that deal with various specific aspects of "human nature," many of them still alive in the public mind e.g., altruism cannot be explained by evolution and must therefore be a gift from the divine, people are naturally monogamous
