The sex-strike theory of human origins

Description

Chris Knight is best known for his 'sex-strike' theory of human origins. Instead of attempting to explain human cultural origins piecemeal, one theory for the incest taboo, another for language, yet another for religion and so forth, Knight's approach is designed to join up the dots. Confirmed by recent discoveries in population genetics, archaeology, the science of mythology and hunter-gatherer ethnography, this is one of the few successful attempts to put together the big picture, explaining religion, language, sexual morality and the whole range of distinctively human characteristics on the basis of one simple idea.
