    Blending science with philosophy, these books from the New Scientist stable ask – and answer – some big questions. What is it to be human? What makes us different from other animals? Why we are like we are, and how did we get that way? What if robots become smarter than us? You can read about why humans are likely to be religious, whether your self is an illusion, what our reality might be like if the laws of physics were different and what death is. There are also some ‘smaller’ questions – why humans are hairy, how survival kits have changed over 5000 years and what someone’s voice reveals about them. Accessible but never dumbed-down.
