What's it about?

Human beings are a social species. Our survival, health, and well-being depend on the social cooperation that is the basis of society. In this collection you’ll learn about the history of human society, how societies are created and work—and how they sometimes fall apart and fail. These Blinks also highlight the cooperative traits and skills that are crucial for societies to grow and thrive, and how myths and rituals are a critical aspect of communities and societies.
