Ursel Nendzig Renée Schroeder - The invention of humankind
How we outsmart evolution
We can't expect evolution to ensure the survival of humankind. If we want to survive, we have to take matters into our own hands.
70, 000 years ago, humans were first able to form a thought about something that didn't exist. What sounds simple actually marks the birth of human culture and poses the outset for a range of inventions that have formed human nature and haven't necessarily changed us for the better. We thought up myths and religions and invented languages, money and racism. Now humankind is about to complete its greatest invention: itself. Science allows us to continue our own evolution. Renée Schroeder looks back at the short period of humankind's existence, takes a detour into genetics and proclaims a new age of enlightenment.
