"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

This reminded me of when I studied atomic physics in college. I used to daydream about how all those jiggling electrons had no idea about how human beings were using their combined actions to emerge in activities at higher layers. Of course I don’t mean they have thoughts and such, just as Dawkins selfish genes don’t really have self-centered human traits.
But what Bowles does is to acknowledge that the overarching structure of the universe is one of layers. It could be that we simply think in layers, but nature does seem almost infinitely layered as Richard Feynman pondered - like an onion with layers all the way down. To ignore the higher level pressure that aging and sex have on the survival of a species by only looking at individual genes would be like ignoring the emergence of electrical engineering and computer science by concentrating only on the atomic actions of electrons.
This book was a quite refreshingly new way (to me at least) of looking at evolution.
Thank you Jeff
as well, he gives solutions to the issues that face all of us.
This book is a must read for anyone who has an interest in aging, evolution, and wants a fresh perspective on a difficult subject.
Whenever the author makes a point, he provides a large number of visual examples
I have no doubt that this is the missing half of the theory of evolution.
This book will likely be a textbook for evolution classes in the future.
