Alan Macfarlane is Professor of Anthropology at Cambridge; Lily, his inquisitive granddaughter, constantly asks him tricky questions about how the world works. In this highly original book, he has decided to provide her with some answers in a series of thirty candid and unpretentious letters.
What is love? Why are families so difficult? How do we get justice? How well does democracy work? Who is God? What makes us individuals? And why are we here in the first place? In responding to his granddaughter’s challenging questions, social anthropologist Alan Macfarlane tackles the great questions of life. His answers range through history and across the world’s cultures, from the personal to the philosophical to the political. The questions are timeless. The answers add up to a classic. Alan Macfarlane’s many books include The Empire of Tea and Glass: A World History.
