MORRIS DESMOND

MAIMUTA GOALA-Recenzie

Editura: Art

Anul aparitiei: 2008

Eram curios sa citesc aceasta carte, uimit fiind de faptul ca desi a fost scrisa in 1967, am gasit-o tratata cu admiratie in mai toate scrierile biologilor, antropologilor, chiar si filozofilor contemporani de rasunet. Cartea este scrisa de un zoolog , Desmond Morris si isi dezvaluie subiectul din primele pagini ale introducerii: “ Exista 193 de specii de maimute in viata,unele cu coada, altele fara. 192 dintre ele sunt acoperite de par. Exceptie face o maimuta goala,autonumita HOMO SAPIENS”. Era de asteptat astfel ca primul capitol sa se ocupe de aceasta enigma: de ce oamenii sunt singurele primate si mai mult decat atat, printre singurele mamifere, fara par? Problema ii framanta pe savanti de multa vreme si mai multe teorii,mai mult sau mai putin fanteziste au fost avansate. Una dintre cele mai interesante este ca lipsa parului este o parte integranta a procesului de neotenie (prelungirea anumitor caracteristici juvenile in viata adulta ) – astfel,un pui de cimpanzeu la nastere, are, ca si omul ,doar capul acoperit cu par. Este posibil astfel ca la om, specia care pastreaza multe caractere neotene, aceasta stare sa fie intarziata si in perioada adulta .Interesant ...

Zoomenirea.

Editura: Art

Anul aparitiei: 2010

Autor a peste 20 de cărți, în care mai nimic nu rămâne pe dinafara spiritului de observație etologic, de la obiceiurile rudelor maimuțe până la tabieturile cailor și comportamentul felinelor, Desmon Morris (n. 1928) ia la bani mărunți animalul din noi. Zoolog activ încă din anii ’50, dar și pictor suprarealist, expus alături de Juan Mirὀ, Morris încearcă să dezlege, încă de la primul volum din 1963 (The Biology of Art), complicatele ițe ale sociobiologiei. Zoomenirea, apărută în 1969, continuă teoria începută în Maimuța goală (1967), ambele volume fiind traduse în mai toate limbile pământului și vândute în zeci de milioane de exemplare. Distanța dintre animalele de la zoo și oamenii din orașe nu este la fel de mare cum ar părea la prima vedere. În cuști sau în junglele de beton, maimuța (mai mult sau mai puțin goală) se vede nevoită să se adapteze noilor reguli de conviețuire. În schimbul hranei, siguranței și îngrijirilor medicale, atât animalele de la zoo, cât și locuitorii de beton se aleg cu sentimentul de izolare și plictiseală, venite la pachet cu o radicală transformare a relațiilor sociale. La fel ca ...

The Naked Woman: A Study of the Female Body

Editura: St. Martin's Griffin

Anul aparitiei: 2007

Internationally bestselling author and world-famous human behaviorist Desmond Morris turns his attention to the female form, taking the reader on a guided tour of the female body from head to toe. Highlighting the evolutionary functions of various physiological traits, Morris's study explores the various forms of enhancement and constraint that human societies have developed in the quest for the perfect female form. This is very much vintage Desmond Morris, delivered in his trademark voice: direct, clear, focused, and communicating what is often complex detail in simple language. In THE NAKED WOMAN, Desmond builds on his unrivalled experience as an observer of the human animal while tackling one of his most fascinating and challenging subjects to date.

The Naked Ape: A Zoologist's Study of the Human Animal

Editura: Delta

Anul aparitiei: 1999

This work has become a benchmark of popular anthropology and psychology. Zoologist Desmond Morris considers humans as being simply another animal species in this classic book first published in 1967. Here is the Naked Ape at his most primal in love, at work, at war. Meet man as he really is: relative to the apes, stripped of his veneer as we see him courting, making love, sleeping, socializing, grooming, playing. The Naked Ape takes its place alongside Darwin's Origin of the Species , presenting man not as a fallen angel, but as a risen ape, remarkable in his resilience, energy and imagination, yet an animal nonetheless, in danger of forgetting his origins. With its penetrating insights on mans beginnings, sex life, habits and our astonishing bonds to the animal kingdom, The Naked Ape is a landmark, at once provocative, compelling and timeless.

The Human Zoo: A Zoologist's Study of the Urban Animal

Editura: Kodansha Globe

Anul aparitiei: 1996

How does city life change the way we act? What accounts for the increasing prevalence of violence and anxiety in our world? In this new edition of his controversial 1969 bestseller, THE HUMAN ZOO, renowned zoologist Desmond Morris argues that many of the social instabilities we face are largely a product of the artificial, impersonal confines of our urban surroundings. Indeed, our behavior often startlingly resembles that of captive animals, and our "developed" and "urbane" environment seems not so much a concrete jungle as it does a human zoo. Animals do not normally exhibit stress, random violence, and erratic behavior--until they are confined. Similarly, the human propensity toward antisocial and sociopathic behavior is intensified in today's cities. Morris argues that we are biologically still tribal and ill-equipped to thrive in the impersonal urban sprawl. As important and meaningful today as it was a quarter-century ago, THE HUMAN ZOO sounds an urgent warning and provides startling insight into our increasingly complex lives.

Owl

Editura: Reaktion Books

Anul aparitiei: 2009

From Edward Lear's "The Owl and the Pussycat"to David Lynch's Twin Peaks, owls have been woven into the fabric of popular culture. At times they are depicted as dignified, wise old scholars and at other times as foreboding voyeurs who see all and interrogate with an accusatory, "Who? Who?" In Owl best-selling author Desmond Morris explores the natural and cultural history of these predators of the night who embody both good and evil in turn. In this fascinating book, Morris describes the evolution, the many species, and the wide spread of owls across the globe. Owls are found on every land mass around the world, with the exception of Antarctica; and as a result of their wide distribution, owls appear in the folktales, myths, and legends of many native peoples--in addition to popular art, film, and literature worldwide. Featuring over 100 telling illustrations from nature and culture, Owl will appeal to the numerous fans of this enigmatic bird, from the friendly Mr. Owls to silent, sinister, hunters of the dark.
