Lucy’s knee: The story of man and the story of his story

Coppens, Y

Beskikbaarheid: In stock


Quick Overview

This is the story of the old days, our story, that of the “slow emergence of the hominid, the difficult breakthrough of consciousness, the heavy rising of body to erect stance and the touching instability of first bipedalism, the clumsiness of first attempts to shape stone and the moving tenacity to improve them.”
It is a story of science, paleao-anthropology, and its most recent advances. It is also the story of a life of research, illuminated by the discovery of the skeleton Lucy – an object of endless fascination.
What is the point of prehistory? It puts Man in its place. “It teaches us who we are, how we became what we are and why.”


Yves Coppens is Professor at the Collハge de France, where he holds the chair of paleo-anthropology and prehistory. He is a member of the Acadツmie des Sciences, and the author of Le Singe, l?Afrique et l?Homme (The Ape, Africa and Man) and Prツ-ambules (Preambles) which have enjoyed huge popular success.
