Reviews

"Not only a very engaging book, but one that provokes thought....Fuentes...offers what is, to my knowledge, the first comprehensive etiological view of the origins and evolution of belief as an essential component of the human niche."-Luis Oviedo, ESSSAT News & Reviews

Awarded the Popular Book Award sponsored by the International Society for Science and Religion

"A wholly impressive look at how our capacity for belief evolved, with fresh insights, especially about early Homo sapiens. I found Fuentes' case studies on religion, economics, and love fascinating."-Barbara J. King, author of Evolving God


"We are the believing species. Much of what we are and what we do is driven by belief of one kind or another. Agustin Fuentes, a gifted writer and teacher, helps us understand both the power and role of belief in this brilliant book. Why We Believe is an exciting intellectual tour through culture, neurobiology, prehistory, religion, economies, love, war, and more. Read it to better know yourself and your species."-Guy P. Harrison, author of At Least Know This: Essential Science to Enhance Your Life, Think: Why You Should Question Everything
