By: Reid, Vybarr Cregan.
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: London Cassell 2018Description: 320 p.ISBN: 9781788400787.Subject(s): Human evolution - Philosophy | Human evolution - Health aspects | Evolutionary psychologyDDC classification: 599.938 Summary: RIMATE CHANGE is a wide-ranging, polemical look at how and why the human body has changed since humankind first got up on two feet. Spanning the entirety of human history - from primate to transhuman - Vybarr Cregan-Reid's book investigates where we came from, who we are today and how modern technology will change us beyond recognition. In the last two hundred years, humans have made such a tremendous impact on the world that our geological epoch is about to be declared the 'Anthropocene', or the Age of Man. But while we have been busy changing the shape of the world we inhabit, the ways of living that we have been building have, as if under the cover of darkness, been transforming our bodies and altering the expression of our DNA, too. PRIMATE CHANGE beautifully unscrambles the complex architecture of our modern human bodies, built over millions of years and only starting to give up on us now. https://www.octopusbooks.co.uk/books/detail.page?isbn=9781788401081
