This provocative text considers whether evolutionary explanations can be used to clarify some of life's biggest questions. * Examines topics of race, sex, gender, the nature of language, religion, ethics, knowledge, consciousness and ultimately, the meaning of life * Each chapter presents a main topic, together with discussion of related ideas and arguments from various perspectives * Addresses questions such as: Did evolution make men and women fundamentally different? Is the concept of race merely a social construction? Is morality, including universal human rights, a mass delusion? Can religion and evolution really be harmonized? Does evolution render life meaningless? * Written in a clear and informative style, with helpful references for further reading and research
