From one of Canada's most distinguished writers and scientists comes this startlingly prescient examination of how humanity's evolutionary past shapes both human nature and the human future. Winner of the Governor General's Award for non-fiction in 1955 and hailed by The New York Times as demonstrating "the imagination of an artist" and "the courage of an independent and original mind," Man's Emerging Mind is the compelling story of man's evolution, told with humour, insight, and poetry. In a book that remains as relevant as today's news headlines, Berrill examines the various crises confronting humanity-resource depletion, overpopulation, cultural nihilism, and ecological collapse-and suggests a way forward that safeguards both our essential humanity as well as the beauty and diversity of the natural world.
