Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Professor Trimble is emeritus professor of Behavioural Neurology at the Institute of Neurology, Queen Square, London. His research for many years has been on the behavioural consequences of neurological disorders, especially epilepsy and movement disorders. He has a lifelong research interest in neuroanatomy, hence his ability to explore the neuroanatomical basis of crying. However, he is also a psychiatrist with much clinical experience of mood disorders, and had investigated the latter in patients using neurological techniques, such as brain imaging. He is the author of The Soul in the Brain (Johns Hopkins, 2007).

HASH(0xa1918f90) von 5 Sternen Rather muddled 4. März 2013
Von John R. Plotz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I am a layperson with a great interest in the emotions, and some small knowledge of the subject. Michael Trimble's book gives a great deal of information about the structure of the brain -- how the amygdala connects to the hippocampus and the like -- but it was over my head. That's not a criticism, exactly. Perhaps the book was aimed at a more knowledgeable audience or perhaps I didn't try hard enough. Still, I was disappointed.

More to the point, I found his discussions of Nietzsche and aesthetics to be muddled and not well connected to his material on the brain. And since his subject was the evolutionary development of some emotions, like sorrow, he should certainly have discussed the work of John Tooby and Leda Cosmides. To speak of the functions and mechanics of emotion without discussing Jaak Panksepp and Paul Ekman and quite a few others is not a good thing. Also, Professor Trimble makes many statements that are mere assertions. He says, for instance, that art was "initially of a religious nature." (p. 130.) Oh?

After reading the book, I felt I did not know any more about why humans like to cry than I did before.

HASH(0xa1fef978) von 5 Sternen a gem! 29. Januar 2013
Von john smythies M.D. F.R.C.P. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Michael Trimble is one of the world's leading neurologists and knows how to present a fascinating story of humans and their brains that everyone can understand. This book is one of a series of such books he has written. It is devoted to the interesting fact that humans are the only species that cry when moved by sorrow, joy or pity. Professor Trimble first traces out the brain mechanisms involved in the emotional storms that lead to weeping, and then takes us through its evolutionary, psychological and cultural anthropological aspects. This story is interwoven with an account of the interplay of Dionysean and Apollonian themes in the theatre, particularly in classical Greece, that depict the human tragi-comedy that is life.
I warmly recommend this little masterpiece.

HASH(0xa17f15a0) von 5 Sternen wonderful! 27. Januar 2013
Von Cindy Dorf - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
In his new book, Why humans like to cry: Tragedy, Evolution and the Brain, Michael Trimble beautifully illuminates the links between neuroanatomical pathways, evolutionary biology, empathy, tragedy, and music that give rise to the "uniquely human ability" to cry emotionally. Trimble addresses why we cry drawing on his deep knowledge of neuro anatomy and human behavior to show us that it is our compassion, originating perhaps as far back as the early hominid communities, from which swell our tears in response to the tragedies of life that echo in Tragic drama and the language of music. This insightful book is highly recommended; the style is clear and the topic universal.

HASH(0xa24ffc3c) von 5 Sternen Not very good 20. Dezember 2012
Von Anne Reboul - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Rather poor and with two not too well-connected sides: the Nietzschean birth of tragedy and the neuroscience and physiology of tears...
