No two alike; human nature and human individuality.


No two alike; human nature and human individuality.

Harris, Judith Rich.

W.W. Norton


322 pages




New Jersey-based independent investigator Harris asks why no two people are alike, even identical twins, drawing on evolutionary, social, and developmental psychology; psycholinguistics; neuroscience; and behavioral genetics. The human mind, she explains, is not simply a complex organ, it is a collection of complex organs, each serving a separate purpose and each operating according to its own rules.
