The Ape-Man Within is a 1995 science book by L. Sprague de Camp, published in hardcover by Prometheus Books. The book undertakes to demonstrate how humankind's self-inflicted problems are rooted in its evolutionary past, with primitive survival traits appropriate to ancestral primates who were organized in small, foraging bands still manifesting in modern societies as competitive, adversarial behavior. De Camp's approach to his subject has been criticized for oversimplification and inaccuracy in matters of detail.
