About the Book

This is book considers the full depth of the link between humanity and motion, exploring our relationship with movement, how it manifests in us, how we embody it, and in particular how it has shaped our history as a species. It argues that the Agricultural Revolution can be seen as a change in how we moved rather than what we ate, with the rise of cities causing a fundamental disruption of the human as a moving being. Settling in cities also saw the extension of motion by using vehicular technology and the desire to overcome movement related to the connection that we have to certain places, manifesting in the development of a new spirituality. It employs a broad, multidisciplinary approach, reflecting background research in ancient philosophy, mapmaking, geology, history, geography, policymaking, medicine, art, anthropology and zoology.
