“Why should human society remain a mystery? Why could human societies not be described with the same accuracy and the same pertinence as the rest of nature? “
These are the premises underpinning Pascal Boyer’s thoughts. In this essay, unique in its genre, Boyer sums up the latest research in evolutionary biology, genetics and psychology to enlighten us about the foundations of human society and its functioning mechanisms.
