Content

We now know just how much we have in common with the species nearest to us in our evolutionary history. But there are also essential differences. One of these is that we humans have a remarkable urge to win, simply for the sake of winning. No animal would ever think of taking part in a competition for no reason, with no direct advantage in terms of food, reproduction of living space.
Josef H. Reichholf shows the development and consequences of this phenomenon and gives us brand new insights into the way we deal with one another.
