The Lucifer Principle by Howard Bloom
A scientific expedition into the forces of history.

The Lucifer Principle is a revolutionary work that explores the intricate relationships between genetics, human behaviour, and culture to put forth the thesis that ‘evil’ is a by-product of nature’s strategies for creation and that it is woven into our most basic biological fabric.

In a sweeping narrative that moves lucidly among sophisticated scientific disciplines and covers the entire span of the earth’s, as well as human, history, Howard Bloom challenges some of our most popular scientific assumptions. Drawing on evidence from studies of the most primitive organisms to those on ants, apes, and humankind, the author makes a persuasive case that it is the group, or ‘superorganism’, rather than the lone individual that really matters in the evolutionary struggle. However, Bloom asserts that the prominence of society and culture does not necessarily mitigate against our most violent, aggressive instincts. In fact, under the right circumstances, the mentality of the group will only amplify our most primitive and deadly urges, providing us with a precise prescription for war.

Howard Bloom is a member of the New York Academy of Science, the American Psychological Society, and the Academy of Political Science. He has published extensively in the United States.
