Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

"Even cows, when they frisk about from pleasure, throw up their tails in a ridiculous fashion." So writes Charles Darwin in his magnum opus on how humans and animals display such emotions as fear, anger, disdain, and pleasure; it is work that has in most respects been sustained by later scientific research. First published in 1872, Darwin's greatest work was never issued in quite the shape its author intended: bits and pieces were left out of subsequent printings, most of them released after Darwin's death, and later editors made additions to suit the intellectual fashion of their times. This definitive edition, heavily annotated, brings us the book that Darwin would have wanted, and it is essential to any naturalist's library.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A magnificent book, splendid new edition! 16. November 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Ever since I received Paul EkmanÕs new edition of DarwinÕs classic work, the book has been my constant companion. I carry it with me from room to room, picking it up to read whenever I have a few minutes.
You can open to just about any page and discover yet another gem. Whether you find a bit to read by chance, or whether you like to be guided by the fascinating table of contents and index, or whether you prefer to begin at the beginning, Darwin is always interesting and accessible. In view of our troubled world, I find it helpful to remember that empathy is an essential part of human and animal nature. It seems the study of emotion must lead us toward a deeper understanding of these universal, powerful forces that energize and transform our lives.
ÒExpressionÓ is really an old friend. As a young dance therapist in the 1960s, I was impressed first by DarwinÕs ability to describe the dynamic process of expressive movement. Obviously it is the emotions that motivate and shape the way we move. I learned then that his observations were gathered over a period of 30 years. His subjects included not only all kinds of animals, but also human infants, children and adults from every walk of life and from many different cultures. He approached the study of emotional expression from the perspective of art, literature and inner experience, as well as from muscles and the nervous system. Although it was first published over 125 years ago (1872) DarwinÕs work continues to inspire and inform contemporary research in many fields.
The new edition is simply outstanding. Paul EkmanÕs editing is clearly a Òlabor of love,Ó and at the same time a thorough, original scholarly contribution.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Don't buy this edition! 9. Februar 2008
Von K. Driscoll - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
OK, so clearly I was fooled by Amazon's practice of listing all reviews of a particular book regardless of edition. My mistake. The positive reviews this book has received are no doubt deserved, but this copy is unreadable. It is, as far as I can tell, a print-out of the public domain text, cheaply bound and so minimally formatted that italics are represented by _underscores_ and the right-hand margin is not even justified. The cover image isn't even correctly proportioned, which, given the original image, is pretty shocking in and of itself.

I can't believe Amazon are even selling this thing. It's a disgrace. I could have produced a better copy myself for less money! The text is in the public domain, so if you don't care what format it's in, just download it for free and print it out. Otherwise, go for the new edition which got such good reviews.

I particularly like the way he places DarwinÕs work in a cultural and social/political context. EkmanÕs commentary offers rich resources as he quietly updates, re-frames or differs, yet more than anything, confirms and extends DarwinÕs observations. It is as if Ekman and Darwin were engaged in a kind of dialogue, each learning from the other. Thereader is a privileged witness.

5.0 von 5 Sternen After the BEAGLE, Darwin's "funnest" book! 4. Juli 2001
Von John Anderson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is the second book that I throw my serious students after I make them read the Voyage. While the subject is serious, there is more than a hint of play throughout, and one can just imagine Darwin observing his own children for clues to discuss as each chapter unfolds. Although this book is of course not nearly as important as the Origin or even Descent, it is essentially part of the Long Argument, and is a great way of bringing behavioural topics to the fore in any discussion of evolution. A pity it is that many modern popularizers of "evolutionary psychology" seem to have missed parts of the form and substance that Darwin expresses here.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ekman edition is excellent 30. November 2009
Von Mr Snarly - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Amazon has a weird policy of lumping together reviews for all the different editions of this book. The bound, Oxford University Press version, with commentary by Paul Ekman, is fantastic. None of the problems with other editions apply to the Ekman version. Don't be discouraged by the negative reviews - the Oxford edition will not disappoint. It has all the original text and photos, it is beautifully produced, and it includes lots of extras too in the form of Ekman's commentary and an essay on the famous illustrations.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Misleading 15. Mai 2009
Von peter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This was a real disappointment. Nowhere, on the Amazon site, or in the book, does it indicate that this edition lacks all the photos of the original - which of course are crucial to the book. It's a cheap reprint (using underscore marks each side of a word to indicate that it is in italics in the original). Buy one of the new editions that will have it all.

PS the enthusiastic customer and general reviews attached to this item's amazon entry are not for this edition
