內容簡介

英國科普大師路易斯‧達奈爾帶領你探究地球偉大的力量如何改變人類歷史

為什麼地球會演變成現在的樣子?如果我們盡可能地遵循一切線索,並且像個好奇的孩子不斷提出疑問,獲得的答案將超乎所有人的想像。因為人類現在造就的所有歷史,都與科學息息相關。

外太空天體生物學專家及科普作家路易斯‧達奈爾博士帶領讀者深入地球的起源之旅,透過調查地球的結構變化和活動方式,如何控制人類的演化,影響人類超過千年的文明,以及持續形塑我們現今的生活。

板塊構造和古老的氣候變化,大氣環流和洋流的形成,漫長的演化過程,有許多地方值得我們仔細探索。本書將揭開人類最原始的故事,深入理解影響人類歷史的各個環節,因而更了解現代世界,幫助人們面對未來環境急遽的變化與挑戰。




Why is the world the way it is? What forces have forged our planet and how have they in turn governed our evolution, influenced the rise and fall of civilisations through history, and ultimately shaped the story of humanity? Lying imperceptibly beneath everything we encounter in the modern world is a vast architecture of causal links, chains of consequences that explain why things are the way they are. Origins is the story of this connectivity; it's not about what we've done to our environment, but about what our environment has done to us. We range from the deep roots behind everyday realities, like why do most of us eat cereal for breakfast, to the profound factors that enabled life to make transitions in evolution. These questions and their answers will take us via the make-up of our anatomy and the geography of the Mediterranean coastline, to the production of cocaine and the importance of volcanoes. With unquenchable curiosity, Lewis Dartnell shows us history that goes back far before the existence of historical records, relying instead on scientific clues like the tell-tale signs preserved in ancient rocks, revealed in our genes, or observed through a telescope. Origins unravels the story of humanity by exposing this vast web of connections that stretch deep into the past, that explain our present and that will inform how we face the challenges of the future.
