The Moral Animal Summary


The Moral Animal: Why We Are The Way We Are by Robert Wright

THE MORAL ANIMAL examines the significance of this extraordinary shift in our perception of morality and what it means to be human.

Taking the life of Charles Darwin as his context, Robert Wright brilliantly demonstrates how Darwin's ideas have stood the test of time, drawing startling conclusions about the structure of some of our most basic preoccupations. Why do we commit adultery, express suicidal tendencies and have the capacity for self-deception? Wright not only provides the answers to such fundamental moral questions from the perspective of evolutionary psychology but challenges us to see ourselves anew through the clarifying lens of this fledgling and exciting science.

The Moral Animal Reviews


THE MORAL ANIMAL overturns old ways of thinking. * INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY *
This is not a book of breathless reportage from some frontier of science; it is an eye-opening, thought-provoking, spine-tingling, mind-boggling, wish-I-had-thought-of-that sort of science book. * TLS *
A damn good book. * THE TIMES *
Anyone who finds the human race a bit of a puzzle will find much stimulation in this book. * SUNDAY TELEGRAPH *
