Author’s Contact Information
This book is written for any informed reader with an interest in human evolution, cognitive development and man’s perception of her/himself through the ages – as reflected in rock art, ritual, etc. – is a potential reader.
The book addresses social, cultural, environmental and other actual problems that are at the core of contemporary humanistic and anarchist literature. However, instead of being an empty enumeration of these well-known problems, a theoretical framework that addresses their etiology is offered.
