Reimagining Our Ancestors: A Dive into the Paleolithic Heart and Mind
Feb 18, 2020 Season 1 Episode 27
Joshua Schrei

We often assume that Paleolithic people lived in a world that was fundamentally less than ours because they didn’t yet have what we have. We assume that their existence was incomplete, because it hadn’t yet culminated in us. Yet new findings on our ancestors' culture, physiology, and physiognomy paint a very different picture. This episode takes us deep into the Paleolithic era, in which 97% of our ancestors lived, and dispels notions about war, violence, primitivism, chaos, and the minds and hearts of Paleolithic people.
