Gizateriari buruzko analisi polita

4 stars

Miguel Brieva-ren "Se busca" komikiaren (paperjale.eus/book/59292/s/se-busca) hariari tiraka iritsi nintzen saiakera hontara. Mardula izan arren erraz irakurtzen da, idazkera ulerkorrean eta adibide pilarekin eginda dago eta. Gizakiak gaiztoak al gara izatez edo onberak? Galdera horri erantzuten saiatzen da autorea hainbat eta hainbat urteetako ikerketa bati jarraiki. Erantzuna niri asko gustatu zait (ez dut spoilerrik egingo! :D) eta gizateriari bidaltzen dion mezua oso indartsua eta transformatzailea dela uste dut. Oso gomendagarria.

Review of 'Humankind' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

What a fantastic book! In an age of polarization, of seeing so much trouble, evil and bad news, this book is not only extremely well timed, but you read it dearly hoping to be true, to be solidly argued, to lift your hopes for humankind and the world. It does all of this.
Now, it´s a quick book. Don´t expect a solid foundation of a new philosophy, or a lengthy review how this "human kind" confronts reality, but it does cover a few key cases beautifully. It also disarms some of the key studies that defend our egoist and evil nature (all of which I knew as valid arguments for evil).
It is a fantastically uplifting book, and I´ve found myself stopping to think and reflect how what I was reading changes my attitude to life. I believe it has. I won´t attribute the change just to this book, but …
