3 von 3 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von David K. Goldstein am 2. Mai 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
Possibly one of the greatest things to come from reading any book, is that your entire perception of something, a paradigm you may have, is completely and entirely set on end. Unfortunately, even for the most avid of readers, this is a very rare, however the day I completed Morris' unprecedented work I never viewed my world in the same way again. This is by no means an exaggeration. Morris breaks human beings down so effectively, so methodically that it is nearly impossible not to agree with him that indeed, stripped of our veneer of civilization, the inner workings of a naked ape are all one is left with. Not to say Morris doesn't get a few things wrong along the way. I am in full accord with modern day evolutionary psychologists (or sociobiologists, or whatever the hell they decide to call themselves) who fault Morris for his pair bond theory, amongst other things, which indeed does stand on very weak ground. I can't see how one gender would ever develop a trait that in the end would only be beneficial to the other gender, as would have had to have happen for this theory to work. Fortunately, though, I tend to see this as a mere chink in the elaborate chains of thought Morris constructs, unlike his detractors who claim it undermines his entire book. This is stupid. Morris was writing back in time when evolutionary psychology was in the zygote stage, completely unknown to anyone beside a handful of scientists. Morris sets forth in his book powerful and logical evidence and explanations that support the clearest model out there with which to view our species. His critics point out that his book failed to create a renaissance in academia, but so what? When has the academic world ever been quick to change its precious models, especially ones that focus on ourselves?Lesen Sie weiter... ›

4 von 4 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Eric R. Johnson am 19. Oktober 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
After reading The Naked Ape, I was driven to read this next installment of the "human trilogy" by D.M. I found that it delved even further into the methods to our "civilized madness." Morris brings to light the true effect of civilization on our species. This book effectively explains the stresses and effects that our cities have placed upon our animal nature. I recommend this book to any person who is interested in human behavior. I believe it takes the eye of an ethologist to separate bias from interpretation. Morris accomplishes this swimmingly as he attaches biological meaning to even our most spiritual behaviors.

1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Fabrice P. Laussy am 18. März 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
This book sure provides the reader with an appealing, refreshingly bright view of the human species, without fear to face man as an intelligent animal, yet still an animal. It is utmost logical, everything stems from always astute arguments or analogies which make the exposition a charming and clever view of humankind's evolution, but this is also and partly for this reason the perfect illustration of the non-scientific, somewhat dangerous book, especially for those readers who wouldn't appreciate the difference between acknowledged facts reported in the book and speculations asserted by the author.
Ascertained facts are narrated in a most fascinating and enthralling speech. For instance, the physical and emotional changes accompanying the act of making love or getting ready for fight are terrific descriptions. Most insights, with more or less experimental evidence to support them, are amazing and will really make you love the book, for their convincing and sounding universal explanations of fundamentals wonders. One will find for instance possible reasons for why our females have orgasms--something quite unique to our species--why do we need love, what are the motivations for jealousy, friendship, courtship, mating in humankind, etc. But too often does Morris attempt to conceal his scientifically-free allegations along with accepted ones. Then come the clearly out-of-topic extrapolations, like how human beings will have to evolve in order to avoid war extermination (said to be more than liable). His description of him faking a dominated ape to avoid paying a speed-excess fine gives the book a taste of tricks cookbook to fool others, when we like to see it as a popularization essay of ethnology with extras.

Von Harold F. Hedrick am 30. Dezember 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
Desmond Morris wrote "The Naked Ape" in the late 1960's, and it is a classic which established the field of evolutionary anthropology. His ideas were revolutionary at the time, and he clearly says so. If there is a fault in the book, it is that he covers too much ground too quickly. I think his purpose at the time, however, was simply to condition the reader to thinking of people as an animal that has been subject to the forces of biological evolution on the Savannah for 98 percent of our evolution. Our species only formed farming communities 10,000 years ago.
Much of Morris's conjecture has been turned into solid research in more recent years. For example, studies have found that males are sexually attracted to females having a waist/hips ratio of 0.7. This is universal among contemporary societies including primitive societies. When shown diagrams of women having different waist/hips ratios, male members of the primitive societies chose the 0.7 ratio and specifically indicated child bearing ability being linked to it. Females universally are attracted to males having a waist/hip ratio of 0.85.
The argument between nurturing versus evolution is likely to continue. This book started the argument. It is certainly a serious argument. Some readers may prefer not to think as humans as being animals. Some readers, particulary those interested in newer cultural trends such as feminism, may find certain of Morris's arguments objectionable. The material is oriented towards understanding how biological evolution of Homo Sapiens has affected their social behavior. It is not directly related to how to get along with your lover or spouse. However, the book was as thought provoking today as when it was written. It is an excellent introduction to the field of evolutionary anthropology.
