Luigi Luca Cavalli-Sforza was one of the most important geneticists in the world, and one of the strengths of his work is the multidisciplinary approach that has innervated his scientific research. His pioneering studies on the biological evolution of humanity and on the genetics of populations would never have had the same disruptively innovative charge had they not been nourished by the fundamental contributions of anthropology, linguistics, archaeology and demographic history.
This transversal perspective led to one of Cavalli-Sforza's greatest and most refined intuitions: the concept of cultural evolution, a study of mental development over the last 60,000 years of Homo Sapiens, seen through the lens of the Darwinian theory of evolution. This volume, with an introduction by Telmo Pievani, is outstanding for its lucid rationality, its depth of perception and its intellectual curiosity. The result is a hymn to mankind and its history.
