What is that theory of human nature? I read that Desmond Morris said he wanted to de-mistify science One criticism I have is his over-emphasis on genetic origins – for example, he claims the pair-bond formation between sexes i. Morris’ characterization of indigenous societies as atypical cultural failures makes sense from the coldly zoological morrris from which he was attempting to write, but fails to take desnudk consideration historical truths which invite explanations beyond a socities’ supposed lack of functionality.

Korris a predatory ape means developing ways to facilitate male cooperation, to hunt together with dangerous weapons, and to guarantee a share of the kills and a female for the effort.

Don’t you think they did anything other than having children!! AmazonGlobal Ship Orders Internationally. Just ideas and cesnudo that seem almost comically colored by the author’s dated biases.
La mrris desnuda es su ultima gran obra. Return to Book Page. This book astonished people 40 years ago and inspired all that psuedo-scientific “men are hunters, women are gatherers” crap, or so I’m told.
El Mono Desnudo
It is the step-back-and look-at-ourselves approach which is of real value here, not his sometimes hilarious conclusions. When Des misses, he does it with style. Then again, a lot of scientists could benefit from that advice. Surely he knows and values scientific method and objectivity- but both are ignored while he forces every aspect of human behavior into his mold. Un saggio strepitoso, geniale e anche divertente a suo modo.
His explanation of the protuberance and shape of female breasts developing as a frontal sexual display resulting from our upright posture, rather than for increased efficiency of nursing, is presented as a credible argument.
The book’s title itself is a playful and astutely humbling jab at the subject which drives straight to the heart of his message: We may drive around in fancy cars, work in skyscrapers, level mountains, dam rivers, etc. Want to Read Currently Reading Read.
El Mono Desnudo : Desmond Morris :
You could do better today. I still will give a chance to The Human Zoo because I also vesnudo it around Desmond Morris’ “The Naked Ape” is not a quality book for individuals seeking to understand the nature of modern evolutionary psychology. Non ho apprezzato, nemmeno un po’, il tono maschilista e omofobo che l’autore tenta di spacciare per scienza oggettiva. I think there is some level of truth in what Des claims, but much of it is baloney. What we do in leisure however reflects both aspects of our nature, in varying degrees.
El Mono Desnudo by Desmond Morris (5 star ratings)
In all cases, Morris makes us think about many desnud of ourselves that we normally take for granted. Still, it is no more than gross vanity that makes us suppose that our manipulation of the external environment or the complexity and ingeniousness of our cultural expression has enabled us to overcome the fact mofris we are “still very much a biological phenomenon He is always specific, startling, but logical.
Studying the nature of the human race as an anthropologist would study a group of apes is as informative as it is hysterical. With knowledge gleaned from primate ethnology, zoologist Morris examines sex, child-rearing, exploratory habits, fighting, feeding, and much more to establish our surprising bonds to the animal kingdom and add substance to the discussion that has provoked controversy and debate the world over. I’ve thought about most of my opinions long and hard for many years, and reading anything that makes me consider changing them is a rare and wonderful experience which had me turning each page almost in awe at what I had found before and might find after.
Yet it’s very interesting from a historical perspective. So tell me I’m weak I dare you!
Apes, to be precise, and our principal distinguishing feature, from a zoological standpoint, from our ape cousins is no deamond than our lack of a shaggy coat. As for the title, the naked ape, the reason why we don’t have a full coat of fur is to aid us in hunting; cooling us down by chasing animals.
We do what we do because we are all What an enormous disappointment Morris was. The style of the book is not purely scientific in so far as he he makes assumptions and draws conclusions from his own experience and his research, Fascinating reading and life affirming in an unexpected way.
There are other sections of the book, however, that begin to spread into the fields of sociology and psychology and therefore involve human interpretation. If we just forage for food, there isn’t a need to cooperate.
