The Nature of Human Nature: Reflections On Our Position As "Natural" Entities In The Animal Kingdom
The Nature of Human Nature is a fun and easy read that includes some of my favourite observations about the quirky human animal. Combined with original cartoons, the ideas presented here are meant to provide humorous insight into the crazy behaviours of the Homo sapiens.

The Nature of Human Nature
This week, we’re joined by Dr. Carin Bondar, biologist and author, to talk about her book The Nature of Human Nature: Reflections On Our Position As “Natural” Entities In The Animal Kingdom. The book takes a critical look at some of the things that we think make human beings unique in the animal kingdom. Does our ability to use contraception, or our tendency to eat junk food just for the pleasure, set us apart from our animal cousins? And we’ll be featuring the music of science rapper Baba Brinkman, including selections from his 2010 album The Rap Guide to Human Nature.
