By Tony Fry

Examining the relation of layout to the character of the human species - the place the species got here from, the way it was once created, what it turned and its most probably destiny - Fry asserts that present organic and social types of evolution are an inadequate clarification of ways 'we people' grew to become what we are.

Making a case for ontological layout as an evolutionary employer, the e-book posits the relation among the formation of the realm of human fabrication and the making of mankind itself as indivisible. It additionally services as a provocation to reconsider the destiny of Homo sapiens, recognising that every one species are finite and that the destiny of humankind activates a basic Darwinian precept - adapt or die.
