We are constantly told that human traits - from aggression to gender differences - are 'hardwired'. In Beyond Human Nature Jesse J. Prinz reveals that it is the societies we live in, not our genes, that determine how we think and feel. From why mental illness differs so widely between cultures to how geography influences morals, from our sexual preferences to how we learn languages, he proves that the vast diversity of behaviour is not ingrained.

This is a book about humanity's power to transcend nature; and one that, ultimately, celebrates our differences.

'From start to finish this book is a fine, balanced, enormously learned and informative blast on the trumpet of common sense and humane understanding . . . wonderful.' Simon Blackburn, New Statesman

'The nature versus nurture tussle has been running for centuries, and into this fervid arena steps Jesse J. Prinz . . . he explores the origins of knowledge, language, thought and emotion and argues that there is not one human nature, but many.' Carl Wilkinson, Financial Times

'Jesse Prinz wants to call a halt to the 'century of the gene' . . .  in a backlash against the tyranny of DNA.' Sydney Morning Herald
