    Why does consciousness exist? Why does virtually every culture have religion? Why does homosexuality exist? Why do we have such large brains? And why do women live longer than men? Among the unanswered questions of evolutionary science are some of the most personal aspects of being human. Barash assesses the main hypotheses which have been proposed to explain these mysteries, offers suggestions of his own and communicates the thrill and allure of cutting-edge biology.
