Shelves: pulitzer-non-fiction Dragons of Eden by Carl Sagan won the Pulitzer Prize for Non-Fiction in Natural selection has served as a kind of intellectual sieve, producing brains and intelligences increasingly competent to deal with the laws of nature. There isnt much discussion of dragons, beyond a short snippet on Komodo dragons, in this book but Sagan uses this metaphor as a catchy title to highlight that this fear may be part of our own mammalian evolution. The dragon concept is buttressed by so many old tales Dragons of Eden by Carl Sagan won the Pulitzer Prize for Non-Fiction in Natural selection has served as a kind of intellectual sieve, producing brains and intelligences increasingly competent to deal with the laws of nature. The dragon concept is buttressed by so many old tales throughout numerous civilizations that Sagan implies there must have been a fearsome dragon or related animal in our distant past that shaped our evolution. I am not convinced per se but the rest of the book is much more serious than this topic. Carl Sagan is arguably the greatest science writer and educator of recent times.

Respeto mucho a Sagan como astrofisico, su labor es de proporciones gigantescas Rodrigo Franco Definitely, I just read it this year and it has aged very well.
