    THE PATTERNING INSTINCT investigates how different cultures have made sense of the universe and how their underlying values have changed the course of history.

    From the first farmers to Chinese sages to the trailblazers of the Scientific Revolution, the book shows how humanity’s unique instinct to pattern meaning into the cosmos has constructed the world we live in today.

    THE PATTERNING INSTINCT traces how, since time immemorial, cultural values have shaped history—and explores how the values we choose as a society will shape our future. Show less
