The Development of a Remarkable Types

We human beings share 98 percent of our genes with chimpanzees. Yet human beings are the dominant species on earth-- having actually established civilizations and faiths, established detailed and diverse forms of communication, discovered science, developed cities, and developed breathtaking works of art-- while chimps continue to be animals concerned mostly with the basic requirements of survival. Exactly what is it about that 2 percent difference in DNA that has developed such a divergence in between evolutionary cozs? In this fascinating, provocative, enthusiastic, comical, constantly enjoyable work, renowned Pulitzer Prize-- winning author and expert Jared Diamond discovers how the amazing human animal, in an incredibly brief time, established the capacity to rule the world ... and the methods to irrevocably destroy it.

Jared Diamond specifies the theme of his book up-front: "How the human species changed, within a short time, from just another species of huge creature to a world conqueror; and how we obtained the capacity to reverse all that progress over night." The Third Chimpanzee is, in numerous ways, a prequel to Diamond's prize-winning Weapons, Germs, and Steel. While Weapons analyzes "the fates of human societies," this work checks the longer sweep of human advancement, from our beginning as just another chimpanzee a couple of million years ago. Diamond writes:

It's obvious that human beings differ all animals. It's likewise obvious that we're a species of huge creature down to the smallest details of our anatomy and our molecules. That contradiction is the most fascinating feature of the human species.

The chapters in The Third Chimpanzee on the strangeness of human reproductive biology were later on expanded in Why Is Sex Enjoyable? Below, they're linked to Diamond's views of human psychology and history.

Diamond is officially a physiologist at UCLA medical school, but he's likewise one of the very best birdwatchers worldwide. The current scientific agreement that "primitive" human beings developed eco-friendly catastrophes in the Pacific islands, Australia, and the New World owes a great deal to his fieldwork and understanding. In Diamond's view, the current global eco-friendly situation isn't really due to modern technology per se, but to basic weak points in human nature. However, he states, "I'm cautiously positive. If we will learn from our past that I have actually traced, our own future might yet show brighter than that of the other 2 chimpanzees." -- Mary Ellen Curtin
