"I find human beings fascinating, especially our more or less endearing behavior. Bit by bit I've come to see us human beings not as autonomous agents in conscious control of our lives, but as incredibly complex biological organisms embedded in the process of our evolving culture. We created Being Human to foster exploration and conversation about the science and mystery of human experience." - Peter Baumann
