In the social leap, william von hippel lays out this revolutionary hypothesis, tracing human development through three critical evolutionary inflection points to explain how events in our distant past shape our lives today.
Their struggle to survive on the open grasslands required a shift from individualism to a new form of collectivism, which forever altered the way our mind works. In the compelling popular science tradition of sapiens and Guns, Germs, and Steel, a groundbreaking and eye-opening exploration that applies evolutionary science to provide a new perspective on human psychology, revealing how major challenges from our past have shaped some of the most fundamental aspects of our being.
The Social Leap: The New Evolutionary Science of Who We Are, Where We Come From, and What Makes Us Happy #ad - The most fundamental aspects of our lives—from leadership and innovation to aggression and happiness—were permanently altered by the "social leap" our ancestors made from the rainforest to the savannah. From the mundane, such as why we believe our own lies and why fame and fortune are as likely to bring misery as happiness, such as why we exaggerate, to the surprising, the implications are far reaching and extraordinary.
Blending anthropology, biology, what makes us happy, and psychology with evolutionary science, The Social Leap is a fresh and provocative look at our species that provides new clues about who we are, history, and how to use this knowledge to improve our lives.

Almost Human: The Astonishing Tale of Homo Naledi and the Discovery That Changed Our Human StoryNational Geographic #ad - A story of defiance and determination by a controversial scientist, this is Lee Berger's own take on finding Homo naledi, an all-new species on the human family tree and one of the greatest discoveries of the 21st century. In 2013, berger, a national geographic explorer-in-Residence, caught wind of a cache of bones in a hard-to-reach underground cave in South Africa.

Berger is a charming and controversial figure, and some colleagues question his interpretation of this and other finds. Did this species come before, or after the emergence of homo sapiens on our evolutionary tree? How did the cave come to contain nothing but the remains of these individuals? Did they bury their dead? If so, during, they must have had a level of self-knowledge, including an awareness of death.
. With this team of "underground astronauts, " Berger made the discovery of a lifetime: hundreds of prehistoric bones, including entire skeletons of at least 15 individuals, all perhaps two million years old.
