This book is written from an evolutionary point of view for a general audience interested in what motivates human nature. The psychiatrist author humanizes severe mental illnesses by demonstrating that the inner experience of those conditions can be interpreted as “emotional fossils,” which reveal the deep evolution of normally functioning emotions and motivations.
