How to Make a Human Being: A Body of Evidence : Human beings know how to make machines. But what kind of machine is a human being? What is reality? What is consciousness? Is there a God? What is love? Why live? What is science?
Commingling his own evidence with that of scientists, philosophers and poets, Christopher Potter explores the big questions, building a body of material that explains both what it means to be human and how we escape the net of scientific reductionism. This startlingly original book is essential to anyone who wonders about the nature of their existence.
