J.Crook combines his deep and expert knowledge of both evolutionary theory, and Buddhist philosophy to present a fierce critique of current world views, and more importantly shows us the way to a more humane and fulfilling means of engaging with the world.

As a practitioner and teacher of Buddhism, accomplished scientist and professorial researcher in behavioral biology and evolutionary psychology, Dr. John Hurrell Crook in this book has boldly taken up the challenge to go beyond the bag of skin, beyond the words and ideas that merely describe reality and realize the truth of our human existence. He has synthesized a compelling argument for a Buddhist humanism that eloquently integrates modern science and the practice and philosophy of Buddhism, resulting in a fresh way of understanding our responsibility as global citizens.



Review 1:In this brilliant and timely work, the author succeeds in synthesizing a lifetime devoted to scientific research, philosophical refelection and Buddhist practice. World crisis and Buddhist humanism is essential reading for anyone concerned with where humanity has come from, and where we might be heading." Stephen Batchelor, authorof Buddhism without belief.
