First we shape
evolutionary theory.
Then it shapes us.

Books exploring the impact of theories of evolution on human nature.

Alfred Wallace thought outside the box. He was the co-discoverer, with Charles Darwin, of the theory of natural selection. Between them, of course, they ended up creating another box. A few years later Wallace thought outside that box, too. Natural selection, he argued, couldn't fully account for human nature, there must be some other mechanism. To escape the box he and Darwin had created he ventured as far afield as spiritualism.

In the following books I take up Wallace's quest. I offer them as a treat for people who, like Wallace, relish out-of-the-box thinking. The newest title begins by asking, what kind of theory would it take to account for human nature as we know it? The answer is a new "self-centered" approach to evolution that lays out a new road to self improvement.

Self Improvement through

a new approach to
Evolution

One of the most amazing discoveries of modern times is, we evolved. Not only our bodies, but also our conscious minds. What kind of process could do that? And if we found out, could we tap into that process to make our selves more amazing?

Yes we could. That's the premise behind this book. It introduces an entirely new way of thinking about the self. What is thinking? Why do we dream? Whatever makes evolution so creative, can we borrow some of that to make our own selves more creative?

The author has professional experience in both the arts and sciences. He brings unique insights to today's most vexing questions: What is the self? Where has it come from? Where is it going?
