Historien om det hele, Hvad er magi? Hvad er videnskab? Kunstneren Kristian Leth har gennem de seneste fire år ført løbende samtaler med professoren og DNA-forskeren Eske Willerslev. De har talt om gener, fortiden og menneskets historie. Om eskimoer, aboriginals og indianere. Om ånder, myter og magi. Ingen af dem påstår at have alle svarene. Eske Willerslev fortæller åbent om alt det, han ikke ved; om sine uforklarlige oplevelser og om videnskabens begrænsninger som erfaringsmetode. Kristian Leth udforsker videnskabens historiske forhold til det, der ligger udenfor den; han fortæller om vodou i Haiti og ritualer dybt i junglen, om filosofi og religion. På baggrund af disse dybe og underholdende samtaler har Kristian Leth skrevet bogens syv fortællinger om magi og videnskab. Her får man forfatteren og forskerens ord for, at livet ikke er så sort-hvidt, som nogle påstår. HISTORIEN OM DET HELE er et generøst og eventyrligt forsvar for åbenhed og et inkluderende verdenssyn, der kan rumme den menneskelige erkendelses tilsyneladende to mest modsatrettede metoder: videnskab og magi.

Da menneskeheden blev til, Hvad er årsagen til, at nogle mennesker er født med gode muligheder, mens andre må kæmpe for føden som levede de i Middelalderen?
