So Human an Animal: How We Are Shaped by Surroundings and Events, is a book written by René Dubos and published by Scribner in 1968.[1] It won the 1969 Pulitzer Prize for General Non-Fiction.[2] Dubos was a microbiologist and pathologist, but the book's major thesis was that technology is dehumanizing us and that science needs to be humanized.
