Popular science essay by two top archaeologists on human evolution so far and on the future of mankind.

Noch sind wir keine Menschen (Not Yet Human) was written before September 11, 2001. However, all events occurred since have only confirmed the propositions which Eudald Carbonell and Robert Sala so lucidly put forward in this essay.

The historic moment that we are living shows yet again that we are lacking rationalised economic and social organisation. Rather, the world is dominated, still today, by misery; tribal and fratricidal vengeance; lack of solidarity among communities or religious rules: by everything we have of a primate.

The authors of Planeta Humà (Human Planet) and Sàpiens denounce a lack of communication between the world of science, on the one hand, and society, on the other hand. They plead for socialising technology and scientific progress as the sole means of overcoming the historic bottleneck at which we find ourselves.

Noch sind wir keine Menschen is a passionate plight for integral rationality, freed of particular and hierarchical interests – i.e., the only rationality which may lead us to fully humanising our species.
