Nonzero: The Logic of Human Destiny by Robert Wright

Nonzero examines our evolutionary and cultural history, concluding that the direction of our evolution was determined by a natural tendency to create win-win situations. It argues that humankind’s biological and cultural history is directional, even purposeful, pushing towards increasing complexity and ultimately goodness.

  • Anyone who has ever wondered what’s “the point” to biological evolution and human history
  • Anyone interested in biology and sociology
  • Anyone who doubts that life on Earth is essentially good – and wants to be proven otherwise!

Robert Wright is a U.S. American scholar and journalist, famous as an advocate for cultural evolutionism and the critically acclaimed author of a number of books, including The Moral Animal and The Evolution of God.
