Renowned neuroscientist Joseph LeDoux digs into the natural history of life on earth to provide a new perspective on the similarities between us and our ancestors in deep time. LeDoux explores our place in nature, the evolution of our nervous systems, and how the emergence of what we humans understand as consciousness made our greatest achievements as a species possible. This page-turning survey of evolution sheds new light on how the brain developed and what it means to be human.
