Technology is what makes us human
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr David Chapman.
Join engineer and artist Tim Hunkin as he explains Frances Evans’ theory, that technology isn’t just something outside ourselves, it’s an innate part of human nature, like sex, sleeping or eating, and that its been a major driving force in evolution. Tool using, along with language and bipedalism, is essentially what makes us human. The complicated theories used to explain why we first stood up are largely unnecessary. Our hands simply became too useful for holding tools to waste them on walking.
