So You Think You Are Human?

The encyclopaedic and imaginative historian Felipe Fernandez Armesto confronts problems from a historical perspective


The harder we cling to the concept of humanity, the more slippery it becomes. But if it breaks down altogether, what will this mean for human values, human rights, and the defence of human dignity? The encyclopaedic and imaginative historian confronts these problems from a historical perspective, showing how our current understanding of what it means to be human has been shaken by new challenges from science and philosophy.
