More About This Title Why Are We Here?
From the big bang, to the origin and evolution of intelligent life in a search for the meaning of human existence, Why are We Here?, by author Bruce Brodie, offers a look at evolution and the future of life on the planet. Through many years of research and study, Brodie addresses a host of questions: ? How did chemistry come to life? ? How did the release of oxygen by cyanobacteria change the natural history of life? ? How did mass extinctions reset the clock and reshape the course of biological evolution? ? Why are homo sapiens so dominant? ? Why do humans build vast civilizations, while chimps, with whom we share more than 98 percent of our DNA, are confined to forests and experimental laboratories and zoos? ? How will cultural and technological evolution, which have transcended the slow pace of biological evolution, shape the future of life on the planet? ? Can we escape the many existential threats that hover over us? Why are We Here? offers a new perspective on how we think about the world, and our place and our purpose in the universe and the future of humanity. It presents a lasting sense of the amazing wonder and mystery of life.
