The Evolutionary Human
This book challenges the Darwinian story of evolution. It suggests that there are underlying forces guiding the direction of evolution and these same forces are guiding our collective human motivations. In other words, evolution is not only purposeful, but it is also intelligent. This understanding allows us to shine a new light on the cultural evolution of Homo sapiens; the physical evolution of life on Earth; and the cosmic evolution of the universe. Unpacking this understanding, in a nutshell, is what this book is about.

"The prophet of values-centric living, Richard Barrett, has once again moved the goal posts for society by unveiling his sweeping analysis on the nature of evolution. Exploring Richard’s book is a thoroughly enjoyable “ride.” Through his incredible awareness, he weaves a new narrative for conscious evolution, the benefits that flow from it, and the ways to achieve it.
