Eamonn Toland: Eamonn Toland’s first book is ‘The Pursuit of Kindness: From Collaboration to Cruelty and back again. An Evolutionary History of Human Nature’ The book argues that there is compelling evidence from evolutionary biology, psychology and archaeology that for 95% of the time that sapiens have walked the earth, Survival of the Fittest for our species has actually meant survival of the kindest.
