Um século depois, aquele que se tornaria um grande antropólogo, Claude Lévi- Strauss, partiu, ainda muito jovem, para a descoberta dos povos da Amazônia e compreendeu que a diversidade cultural period the most important para a evolução do homem.
Neste livro, Pascal Picq imagina que os nossos dois cientistas partem novamente para a aventura, para a redescoberta do novo mundo. Entretanto, Charles Darwin e Claude Lévi-Strauss teriam dificuldade em reconhecer esse novo mundo, a tal ponto as diversidades average e cultural foram danificadas.
À medida que as espécies desaparecem e as culturas e as línguas morrem, é o nosso futuro e o da Terra que são prejudicados.
Darwin e Lévi-Strauss nos avisaram. Por que não os compreendemos? Podemos, enfim, ouvi-los?
Um apelo fascinante a uma conscientização urgente e salutar.
