A fascinating examination of what science can and cannot expl. Malik demonstrates that much current thinking about human nature is flawed: how there is more than one way to design a mind; why the lifestyles of contemporary hunter-gatherers do not illuminate the lives of our prehistoric ancestors; and what intelligent machines really reveal about human consciousness. He shows, too, how the scientific debate about human nature is as influenced by politics as by science. Man, Beast, and Zombie is both a defense of scientific reason and a challenge to some of todays most cherished scientific theories.

Asking if science can tell us everything is like asking if the alphabet can spell every word that exists. Biologist Lynn Margulis, winner of the . Presidential Medal for Science, put it best in her book What Is Life?. cience is asymptotic. Science is our tool for knowledge, not the source of it. If we continue to use this tool, we will be able to understand anything we use it on since the tool’s purpose is to chisel out such understanding from what we observe.
