In Where Am I?, University of Waterloo professor Colin Ellard offers an engrossing account of our mental relationship with physical space. One of his key premises is that human beings differ in fundamental ways from all other animals in the way our minds engage with space. He looks at the conceptual tools we share with animals for exploring spatial dimension and pinpoints where our methods differ from those of other species.
Anyone with an interest in the biological origins of human nature, especially as it relates to the wider world of human affairs, will be interested in reading this important new book.
