Overview
Our primal tendencies have been forged by a legacy of millions of years of evolutionary biology as well as a legacy of ancestral lineage. This book explores the origins of our tribalistic and racist inclinations, their resilience in our collective ethos, as well as its permeation in our modern society and our everyday interactions with others.
Description
Our primal tendencies have been forged by a legacy of millions of years of evolutionary biology as well as a legacy of ancestral lineage. We function in a modern-day environment with these tendencies and inclinations that have helped us to survive for millennia. However, our modern-day sociological environment is not suited for the primal proclivities that we carry within us which leads us to engage in behaviors that are primally motivated and are construed as discriminatory and racist in nature when, in reality, they often stem and are triggered by our primal, limbic system as autonomous responses which were forged, essentially, as survival mechanisms. This book explores the origins of this phenomenon and its resilience as well as its permeation in our modern society and our everyday interactions with others.
