Kurzbeschreibung

Dr. Carl Sagan takes us on a great reading adventure, offering his vivid and startling insight into the brain of man and beast, the origin of human intelligence, the function of our most haunting legends--and their amazing links to recent discoveries.
"A history of the human brain from the big bang, fifteen billion years ago, to the day before yesterday...It's a delight."
THE NEW YORK TIMES


From the Paperback edition.

Synopsis

The well-known astronomer and astrobiologist surveys current knowledge of the development of intelligence on Earth in various forms of life and explains his persuasion that intelligence must have developed along similar lines throughout the universe.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Worthwhile reading for anyone of any generation 5. Dezember 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
One of my all-time favorites, I actually read this book with, of all people, my Grandmother, who was at least equally enchanted by it.
The book is a fascinating account of the evolution of the human brain, and makes some powerful points about the ways in which our reptilian and other ancestors are still very much with us.

5.0 von 5 Sternen It Makes you land on reality 31. Januar 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
Eventhough it is true that this book was written a long time ago, its basic purpose which is to show that men can contruct their own reality when done through an uncompromised acceptance of the power of critical thinking and science, will in the end bring us closer to our true nature. His fantastic explanations about the nature of the brain are only a tool for that goal.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An early Sagan work still relevant today. 15. Dezember 1999
Von "rjgrib"
Format:Taschenbuch
Sagan's gifted style of writing manages to take difficult topics and present them in a readable, fascinating, and thought provoking manner. Sagan's works should be required reading in any high school science class.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Dragons of Eden: Breath-taking 20. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
A sweeping view of human intellectual development and mind comparison. (Speaking of which: any readers of reviewer Kityty above ["Too Technical..."] will hope along with me that she will first learn her "Englixh" and then decide whether or not to take up "schechty" reviewing!). This book is a panoramic vista of what is known about human (and animal) brain geography and function, and it is written with the same multi-disciplinary knowledge that makes Cosmos so beautiful. I loved his compressed "Cosmic Calendar!"

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent 13. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Easily one of my favorite books that I never get tired of reading, and I have been reading this and his other books since I was 10 years old. It seems that the kityty person is not intelligent enough to understand the concepts even as elucidated by one of the great thinkers and teachers of our time. I hope that my 5-star review brings the average up to negate the effect of that ignoramus below. What a disgrace to humanity. Perhaps she would be found in the lower right hand corner of the brain/body mass chart?

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great, easily explained. 5. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Of the 4 books I've read from Sagan, this is the second best (just after Cosmos). Everything seems so logical at reading it. I'm a Catholic, a real believer in God and evolution. Why must everyone try to make a fight between science and Religion, while they can shake hands? If I was given a brain, it was for me to use it and take the most out of it, otherwise, I would be a geocentrist non-thinker. It's a shame we had lost a liberal thinker and scientist as Dr. Sagan, he must be on better life now.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Carl Sagan makes you look at things differently. 18. März 1998
Format:Taschenbuch
Sagan never lost his child-like wonder when describing the world around us. His writings are, for the most part, understandable and logical. We lost a great deal when he died, and I lost one of my favorite authors. A thought in one of his books stays with me: On a beach, pick up a handful of sand. You're holding roughly 2500 grains of sand, which is about how many stars you can see on a clear night. There are more stars in the universe than there are grains of sand on all the beaches in the world.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Entertaining, but sketchy on facts
This book was a joy to read, but it must definately be taken with a grain of salt. In attempting to justify a long evolution of the human psyche, Sagen credits our fear of snakes... Lesen Sie weiter...

2.0 von 5 Sternen 10% Science
This book is composed of 10% science, 10 % anectdotes, and 80% speculation. It would make a good 3 page article in the Sunday supplements if the gibberish were taken out. Lesen Sie weiter...

Anyone who doesn't like this book should be sent to China and opressed. Every Christian should read this book to understand the "soul". hahaha
