Homo Solidaricus: Confronting the myth of human selfishness (Homo Solidaricus)

Rights: Immaterial Agents | |
So far sold to: Brazil, Denmark, Germany, Spain - Spanish territory only

New insights from biology, behavioral science and economics have, over the last 50 years, turned ideas about human beings upside down. Especially the notion of Homo Economicus – the idea that we all have narrow self-interest as a goal in everything we do – has been changed.

In this book, Wegard Harsvik and Ingvar Skjerve introduce us to an opposite to Homo Economicus: Homo Solidaricus. The book shows that selfishness and self-gain must be prevailing as the idea of Homo Economicus is wrong. It introduces new knowledge that shows cooperation is fundamental to us as a species. The authors let us see how this must also have consequences for how we discuss politics and create good societies. Solidarity and community is not a fight against human nature. It is deeply rooted in us.

After reaching the Banzare bank in the Arctic Ocean, captain Peter Hammarstedt and the crew of his environmental campaigning ship «Bob Barker» embarked on a chase unlike any seen before. By way of frequent flag changes, hidden ownership, false papers and helped along by antiquated regulations for stopping crime at sea, the trawler «Thunder» was able to continue its illegal fishing activity in ocean areas around Antarctica for more than 10 years making as much as £5 million a year. In 2013, Interpol put out a notice for the ship internationally. It was the environmental organisation Sea Shepherd that finally pinned down the poachers, in a desolate ocean area around Antarctica, after having followed in the wake of the notorious poaching trawler «Thunder» for four consecutive months.

Can a forgery be real art? How do you recognize a liar? What is honest in war and politics? Bluff examines what we consider true and false, and why we are so busy keeping them apart.
Bår Stenvik reviews immediate and ancient history, visits a defense research institute and attends seduction classes, interviews art historians and neuroscientists, and ties it all together into an entertaining story about what repels, fascinates, and defines us: lies, deceit, and self-deception.
