  • Grayling brings satisfying order to daunting subjects

    Steven Pinker
  • Remarkable, readable and authoritative. How he has mastered so much, so thoroughly, is nothing short of amazing

    Lawrence M. Krauss, author of A Universe from Nothing
  • This book hums with the excitement of the great human project of discovery

    Adam Zeman, author of Aphantasia
  • Prof. Grayling interweaves the recent scientific and archaeological advances into a compelling narrative of how much progress humans have made in the understanding of their place in the natural, social and cognitive worlds. And how ignorant we still remain providing strong motivation to further this understanding by new empirical evidence

  • AC Grayling tackles the questions science can't answer... a breathtaking book... Scholarly, lucid and accessible without being patronising or diluting, Grayling offers a masterly exegesis of current knowledge in three disciplines, as well as an analysis of what both opens and obstructs our access to such knowledge - in effect, four books in one
