About the Author

Raymond Tallis trained as a doctor before going on to become Professor of Geriatric Medicine at the University of Manchester, UK. He was elected Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences for his research in clinical neuroscience. He retired from medicine in 2006 to become a full-time writer. His most recent works include Epimethean Imaginings (2014) and The Black Mirror (2015).


"A trenchant, lucid and witty attack on the reductive materialism of many scientific accounts of consciousness." - David Lodge, The Guardian's Books of the Year

"Neuroscience, we are implausibly informed...will help dispense with evil. Who better to debunk its pretensions while instructing us in its uses than wise, literate Raymond Tallis, a neuroscientist himself, in his entertaining Aping Mankind." - George Walden, Evening Standard's Best Books of the Year

"With erudition, wit and rigour, Tallis reveals that much of our current wisdom is as silly as bumps-on-the-head phrenology." - Jane O'Grady, The Observer

"Impassioned and intensely erudite." - Dominic Lawson, Sunday Times

"Raymond Tallis is one of the very few contemporary thinkers whom I would unequivocally call a genius." - The Scotsman on Sunday
