Human Nature offers a wide-ranging and holistic view of human nature from all perspectives: scientific, historical, and sociological. Mary Clark takes the most recent data from a dozen or more fields, and works it together with clarifying anecdotes and thought-provoking images to challenge conventional Western beliefs with hopeful new insights. Balancing the theories of cutting-edge neuroscience with the insights of primitive mythologies, Mary Clark provides down-to-earth suggestions for peacefully resolving global problems. Human Nature builds up a coherent, and above all positive, picture of who we really are.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"In Search of Human Nature poses questions imperative to these times and then sets about offering answers that are human and thoughtful...Clark's ideas sometimes run contrary to accepted wisdom, posing an intriguing set of questions about our capacities for creative choice even in the midst of systemic forces that are popularly believed to constrain our choices. Her vivid metaphors and careful explanations are grounded in impressive research and innovative perspectives. I recommend the book without reservation." - Michelle LeBaron, University of British Columbia
