Overview

"Winner of independent publisher awards, The Third Basic Instinct is a one-of-a-kind journey into the mind and religion. In addition to the basic animal instincts to survive and to reproduce, humans possess a crucial third instinct, which has been a force for scientific discovery, innovation, and emotional intelligence. Without it, humans would not have evolved so far beyond other animals. Unfortunately, a grave threat to this fundamental asset is organized religion, which restricts human potential, but rather than raging about the dismantling of all organized religion, Key focuses instead on the importance of carefully choosing one's personal belief system. Drawing examples from ancient and contemporary history and science, The Third Basic Instinct paints a thought-provoking picture of the conflict between religion and human nature. "
