Summary
Mittleman reflects on Jewish views of human nature as they are related to general views, especially of the sort promulgated by contemporary neuroscience and evolutionary biology. He asks how to take whatever truth is in the current versions of the ubiquitous naked ape accounts while holding on to--for some people discovering for the first time--the truth of older frameworks for understanding what it is to be the creatures we are. He helps Jews, Christian, secular folk, and others understand perspectives generated by the sciences and philosophy in light of the teaching of Judaism.
