About this book
Guardian & Observer reviews
Subtitled, "How Child Development Explains What Makes Us Human". Illuminates our understanding of the feelings and beliefs that show us at our most human.
Why is a forgery worth so much less than an original work of art? What's so funny about someone slipping on a banana peel? This work answers such questions, and other questions regarding human traits as art, humour, disgust, and morality. Presenting an account of human nature, it contends that we all see the world in terms of bodies and souls.
