Humans are a puzzling species. On the one hand, we struggle to survive on our own in the wild. On the other hand, humans have produced innovative technologies, sophisticated languages, and complex institutions. Joseph Heinrich — co-director of Harvard’s Human Evolution, Cognition, and Culture Center — explores how our cultural and social development produce a collective intelligence that explains both our uniqueness and our success.
