Desmond Morris is an Anthropologist, and the person that made me decide that I, too, would like very much to be an Anthropologist, and The Naked Ape is a study of the Human Being as an animal. Provocative form the first page, this assay of Desmond Morris has left a deep mark on the scientific career of many people. It is the step-back-and look-at-ourselves approach which is of real value here, not desmone sometimes hilarious conclusions.

El Mono Desnudo : Desmond Morris :

The explanation is really clear, easy to understand and there were some really interesting and cool facts about certain human behaviour that we still practice Also his treatment of warfare is incomplete morirs not entirely satisfactory for me. I found the book to stray from scientific fact, or even scientific theory with some evidence to a collection of the authors own views and personal feelings about the issues discussed.

El Mono Desnudo – Un Estudio Del Animal Humano

mno We haven’t evolved to be complete predators, just enough behaviors to utilize our intelligence and social cooperation to survive and thrive. I know others will attack the author as chauvinistic not only in regards the sexes, but cultures as wellbut still, hey, the book can just be considered food for thought.

And the added bonus of being written with overtones of an impending Cold War made the book even more enjoyable.

Dall’osservazione delle specie a noi piu’ vicine, Desmond Morris presenta un’inquadratura completa della nostra specie e delle nostre innate abitudini: That is, human breasts are actually not very good feeding devices when compared to those of other apes. Preview — El mono desnudo by Desmond Morris. Just ideas and theories that seem almost comically colored by the author’s dated biases. The chapters on sex and rearing were shocking to some in the way they dispassionately described these aspects of human behavior.

I spent a year in Marbury, a non-authoritarian school modelled on Summerhill. If only I’d chosen a normal school instead. Even the most complex behaviors like pacing back and forth and the conduct of war harken back to our more modest origins. I was afraid it would be too academical for my humanities-oriented brain Su examen de los humanos desde un punto de vista plenamente zoologico posee una llamativa faceta polemica.

A book that every human should read to understand oneself. We may drive around in desmmond cars, work in skyscrapers, level mountains, dam rivers, etc.

But if you’re not irrationally dogmatic, it can help you understand why your fellow man is so irrational. In particular his chapter on animals and humans relationship with them. The nipple typically isn’t shaped to fit easily into the infant mouth and the excess tissue around it can even obstruct the baby’s breathing. It’s really incredible, and with sound logic. You do not get out of your car and approach an arresting officer.

To go forward we have to take an honest look at where we came from. Ironically, Morris suggests, the naked ape’s first step toward salvation will be the recognition of his true nature. The most common complaint about this book is lack of evidence or proof.

With knowledge gleaned from primate ethnology, zoologist Morris examines sex, child-rearing, exploratory habits, fighting, feeding, and much more to establish our surpris A startling view of man, stripped of the facade we try so hard to hide behind.

Because we are unique, we are remarkable.

There are probably some aspects of this book which have been called into question by subsequent research findings, but in general the materials on the human evolutionary biology and psychology I’ve read in the meantime seem to support Morris’s positions. A sociobiological view of the human race and human evolution which I found quite fascinating when I read it back in the day.
