Lang geleden, voordat er mensen bestonden, bleven alle dieren vruchtbaar tot hun dood. De afgelopen vijf miljoen jaar hebben wij ons ontwikkeld tot de enige diersoort met een menopauze.

But it was a life... more...

Further, Paul John Eakin contends, the self at the center of all autobiography is necessarily fictive.... more...
