Descripción en inglés

“If you are looking for a definitive guide that explains how humans became an ultra-cooperative and eventually moral species, “Una historia natural de la moralidad humana” is the book for you. After “Una historia natural del pensamiento humano,” the evolutionary anthropologist Michael Tomasello gives us another seminal contribution.”

The book offers the most detailed explanation of the evolution of human moral psychology, which, according to Tomasello, developed in two key stages. The first occurred as ecological challenges forced early humans to collect in groups or die. To coordinate these collaborative activities, humans developed cognitive skills of joint intentionality that ensured that partners were aware of the normative standards of each role and committed them to share what was collected according to a common sense of trust, respect, and responsibility. The second stage occurred as the human population grew and the division of labor became more complex. Different cultural groups emerged that demanded loyalty, agreement, and cultural identity from their members. As members of a new cultural “we,” modern humans developed cognitive skills of collective intentionality, which gave rise to culturally created and objectified norms of good and evil that everyone in the group could see as legitimate for those who were one of “us.” Thus, based on extensive experimental data comparing great apes to children, Tomasello reconstructs the way primeval humans gradually became an ultra-cooperative and, eventually, moral species.
