Traditional thinking on evolution is that our intelligence led humans to dominate the planet. Dr Robert Foley turns the fossil evidence upside down to argue that scientists have fooled themselves into believing they have been objective when, in fact, they have looked at mankind's evolution in isolation, rather than viewing the human race as one of many co-evolving species.
