3.2 Necessities and luxuries

As the division of opinion between the government and low income people illustrates, definitions of poverty are the stuff of political debate. People in the Rowntree studies tended to focus on ‘paying bills and food’. Most people's list of basic needs would also include adequate food and clean water, clothing, shelter and heating. But are there also less apparently physiological, more evidently social, necessities of life?

2.3 The colugo

In LoM, DA vividly describes one particular evolutionary development associated with tree dwelling - taking to the air [pp. 221-227]. The gliding habit evolved independently in different mammalian lineages and yet the anatomical modifications that allow it are similar in, for example, flying squirrels and the unrelated colugo. In particular, the 'sail of skin' [p. 221], technically termed a patagium, stretches between the limbs - and a good deal further in the colugo, acting as an effective (

2.5.1 The reductionist perspective

Although theology had been thought of as ultimate knowledge, in post-Enlightenment thought, religion came to be seen by many in the West as a hindrance to progress and the advancement of human knowledge.

In the nineteenth century, this idea was boosted by Darwinian theories of evolution. Charles Darwin’s <
