Nicholas Humphrey's writings about the evolution of the mind have done much to set the agenda for contemporary psychology. Here, in a series of essays, lectures, journal entries, newspaper articles, he invites us to 'take another look' at a variety of the central and not-so-central issues, including: the evolution of consciousness, the nature of the self, multiple personality disorder, the placebo effect, cave art, religious miracles, medieval animal trials, and the seductions of dictatorship.
While the themes are various, they all concern the uneasy relation between minds and bodies, and they all take issue with received ideas.
