Human Instinct

Hay Festival 2003, 
The conscious and unconscious decisions we make are deeply affected by an ancient and universal genetic programme. Our ambition and lust, our drives to compete and to co-operate are essential components of the human mind, forged among our ancestors on the African savannah. Instincts were instrumental in the evolutionary success of the species and success meant a fondness for sex and violence, for status and wealth, and a will to survive. Lord Winston is the pre-eminent professor of reproductive medicine in Britain.
