The Exceptional Species on Life Elsewhere

Share

Next at Life Elsewhere we take a look at us…the Exceptional Species. First, we’ll go back in time to discover our ancestors. Dr. Lydia Pyne has drawn from archives, museums, and interviews to build a cultural history of seven celebrity fossils, the enterprising result is collated in her new book, Seven Skeletons: The Evolution of the World’s Most Famous Human Fossils. It’s a fascinating and entertaining study that puts the impact of paleoanthropology into a new context and serves as a reminder of how our past as a species continues to affect, in astounding ways, our present culture, and imagination. Then, an investigation into what makes humans so exceptional among all the species on Earth? Agustin Fuentes has studied human creativity, the results are expertly explored in his new book, The Creative Spark: How Imagination Made Humans Exceptional where the renowned anthropologist presents a bold synthesis of paleontology, archaeology, genetics, and anthropology that overturns misconceptions about race, war and peace, and human nature itself. Finally, can we create a life that is both meaningful and fulfilling, regardless of who or where we are? Bill Burnett and Dave Evans explain that everything in our lives was designed by someone. And every design starts with a problem that a designer or team of designers seeks to solve. This is the premise of their wonderfully informative book. Designing Your Life: How To Build A Well-Lived Joyful Life. Don’t miss three intriguing interviews on the next edition of Life Elsewhere about us: the Exceptional Species.
