  • What is a human?
  • Humans have a highly developed brain and are capable of abstract reasoning, language, introspection, and problem solving. This mental capability, combined with an erect body carriage that frees the hands for manipulating objects, has allowed humans to make far greater use of tools than any other living species on Earth. Other higher-level thought processes of humans, such as self-awareness, rationality, and sapience,are considered to be defining features of what constitutes a "person" - Wikipedia hu·man·i·ty   [hyoo-man-i-tee or, often, yoo-] noun, plural -ties.1. all human beings collectively; the human race; humankind. 2.the quality or condition of being human; human nature. 3.the quality of being humane; kindness; benevolence. - Dictionary.reference.com
