The Science of Being Human : Why We Behave, Think and Feel the Way We Do, Hardback Book

The Science of Being Human : Why We Behave, Think and Feel the Way We Do Hardback


Offering a unique insight into human behaviour, this book explains why we behave the way we do and what happens when humans interact with the world and each other. Starting with evolutionary biology and what it physically means to be a human being, this book moves on to include a wide range of topics such as artificial intelligence, virtual reality and how we are evolving as we interact with new technology.

There will be sections on how we perceive the world, such as why our brains - rather than our senses - can tell us about the world around us; crowd behaviour and more everyday things we can relate to, such as why your queue is mathematically proven to always be slower. The Science of Being Human explains all these human phenomena and how science, maths, psychology and other disciplines play their part.
