Joseph Henrich - 2017-10-17

Humans are a puzzling species. On the one hand, we struggle to survive on our own in the wild, often unable to solve basic problems, like obtaining food, building shelters, or avoiding predators.

@StefanFSchubert After reading @JoHenrich book "The Secret of Our Success", I've greatly updated in the direction of believing that media probably does affect how we think and behave, but we aren't very aware of it because culture acquisition is mostly a passive nonconscious process.      source

The authors provide a helpful section in the methods on how to interpret nutritional geometry graphs, which is probably too long for me to screenshot here. I recommend their book The Nature of Nutrition for a more detailed discussion of the method.      source
