Rhytmic dance of the human history, 30. Mai 2000
By applying the game theory of non-zero and zero-sum strategies Robert Wright established an astonishing relation between this game theory and cultural and biological evolution. Sound knowledge of anthropological and historical concepts are displayed troughout the entire book. There is an abandonment of morality during most of the chapters, to retake a theological and moralistic view of evolution in the last chapter. The most important aspect to make non-zero a book worth reading is the ability of the author to give an organized perspective of human evolution incorporating history, geography and biological evolution. The future of humankind will be determined not only by natural selection but also by moralistic determinants. In the final two chapters,Richard Wright gave only briefly a chance for a superior divinity to be part of this evolution.
