    Cambridge Forum Jared Diamond Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jared Diamond discusses his latest book, "The World Until Yesterday." Diamond argues that today's traditional societies represent a window onto the human world as it was only yesterday, measured against a time scale of the 6,000,000 years of human evolution. Traditional lifestyles are what shaped us, but there are profound differences between so-called traditional societies and industrial or post-industrial societies in everything from the way we count to the way we meet strangers. What can we learn from the world of yesterday as we negotiate the new challenges of the modern world?
