- "Man is an animal first - but not foremost. Man is both on animal and the most complexly developed of all social beings. Indeed, man's social development has been such as to render his biological development something that has become increasingly subject to his own control. If men are to exercise that control wisely it is desirable that they shall make themselves well acquainted with the basic facts concerning human nature. In the present book Professor Ashley Montagu has attempted to provide the fundamental information concerning the nature of the biological factors on the one hand, and the social factors on the other, which enter into the making of the biosocial nature of man. Professor Montagu discusses the origins of our present beliefs concerning human nature and demonstrates the fallacies inherent in many of these time-honored views, as well as those inherent in theories of many prominent writers in this controversial field. The contribution made in this volume to the clarification of our understanding of the true meaning of human nature represents a scientific contribution of importance. For if humanity is to realize its own potentialities, one of the first prerequisites is an understanding of what those potentialities are. If we would know what we are born for, it is important that we know not only what we are born as, but how we can be made into what we can become. Written in non-technical language this informative and stimulating book will cause the reader to revalue many of his valuations, and to rethink once again his many beliefs concerning human nature"--Cover.
