0 Reviews
Humanity is an examination of human feelings - and the way we display them. It challenges the notion that our emotional reactions are pretty much constant, unchanged over centuries, and instead looks at how emotional responses have evolved throughout history. From eighteenth-century suicide cults to the childhood fears that created last centurys despotic military leaders, Stuart Walton traces how and why we really behave when were hurt, afraid and angry, and demonstrates the global consequences of those private and personal feelings.
