Gaia Vince
A Positive Story of Humanity

It’s timely to welcome science writer, broadcaster and award-winning author of Adventures in the Anthropocene, Gaia Vince, whose new book Transcendence compels us to reimagine our ancestors. To think of ourselves as smarter chimps with cool tools is to miss what is truly extraordinary about us. Exploring cutting-edge advances in population genetics, archaeology, psychology and more, Vince invites us to look around us: we are the intelligent designers of all we see – including ourselves.
