      Morris makes a great song and dance about the outrage with which his book was first received Why are people so resistant to contemplating, in the cool light of scientific objectivity , their animal nature , he asks However, Morris claim to neutrality is highly suspect he urges us to learn from and accept the picture he presents of human beings, sayinghomo sapiens has remained a naked ape in acquiring lofty new motives, he has lost none of the earthy old ones This is frequently a cause of embarra [...]

      This was one of the most upsetting books I have ever read Fifteen years of age, I approached Morris with a vague, general interest in animals, i.e zoology His book was popular and available in the Park Ridge public library where I read it.Fifteen and never been kissed Well, that is not quite true In first grade I was kissed by Lisa That happened in her garage up Butte Lane from our house in the Meadowdale development It was, it is unforgettable A willowy blonde, she wore a powder blue smock over [...]

      People are animals Our behavior has evolutionary roots even many behaviors we define as cultural have their basis in our prehistoric dog eat dog, survival of the sexiest past.There, that s the thesis perfectly sound and very interesting The book falls apart in the details though sweeping generalizations and odd assumptions about sexual behavior and gender roles and cultural supremacy without any supporting proof Just ideas and theories that seem almost comically colored by the author s dated bia [...]

      I spent a year in Marbury, a non authoritarian school modelled on Summerhill It was all too weird for words Next time any of you wonder why I don t know what continent Spain is in, or why places that are further away have times that are closer orep in mind that my geography text book for the year was The Naked Ape Well, I say it was that sort of school like it s to blame for my appalling ignorance of geography If only I d chosen a normal school instead But truth be told, the next year I did chos [...]

      Reading this book again after 37 years, I was pleasantly surprised at the relevant impact this book still has Perhaps reading it after nearly four decades of experience as a member of its target species, points in it seemed to ring true There are probably some aspects of this book which have been called into question by subsequent research findings, but in general the materials on the human evolutionary biology and psychology I ve read in the meantime seem to support Morris s positions.When fir [...]

      Desmond Morris The Naked Ape is not a quality book for individuals seeking to understand the nature of modern evolutionary psychology Morris work is notable only for being a historical perspective into the origins of a discipline which has since his book taken on a dynamic and vibrant academic life If one can manage to make it past some of the glaring errors in his work at one point he suggests that women evolved a trait because it was evolutionarily better for men Uh, Desmond Evolution by natur [...]

      When I stumbled across this book last week and promptly down loaded it to my kindle, I did not realize it had been first published in 1967 Some of the views are decidedly antiquated For example that men go to work in attempt to satisfy the hunting urge together with other men, while women stay at home and take care of the children In most of the Scandinavian countries, as large a percentage of women as men are now an active part of the work force The superficial treatment of homosexuality and re [...]

      The Naked Ape is my favourite book, ever If The Naked Ape was a person I would marry it in a heartbeat under whatever terms it wished, and I would be than happy to give my body over to producing as many of its children as I could because a book like this deserves to bear children than most of us do Desmond Morris is an Anthropologist, and the person that made me decide that I, too, would like very much to be an Anthropologist, and The Naked Ape is a study of the Human Being as an animal Morris [...]

      Pelo uguale potere Acuta e pungente analisi di Morris sull animale uomo L opera si prefigge l obiettivo, in chiave scientifica ed umoristica, di metterci a nudo dal punto di vista dell evoluzione, del carattere, dell educazione sessuale e dell impatto avuto sull ambiente.L uomo , in fin dei conti, un animale che si elevato rispetto ad altri, ma rimane pur sempre legato ad istinti e pulsioni primordiali che qualunque societ o legge mai potr cancellare del tutto.Morris gioca benissimo con queste t [...]

      Un saggio strepitoso, geniale e anche divertente a suo modo Il linguaggio alla portata di tutti e non diventa mai pesante Leggetelo

      I don t know what sort of re packaged edition I read originally, but it was a short, coffee table sized hardback, with full sized, four colour photos of women s pupils dilating It seems men automatically find the same photo of a woman, but with larger pupils, attractive I thought I d discovered a secret key to measuring womankind, in a kind of Cosmo version of The Naked Ape A friend in school saw my book and got very excited, but the secret knowledge within, well, that was only for me.Now that [...]

      This book astonished people 40 years ago and inspired all that psuedo scientific men are hunters, women are gatherers crap, or so I m told It s aged badly The author comes across as pretty full of himself he thinks his way of analyzing human behavior from a zoological perspective raises him above bias, but he s amusingly unaware of his own biases misogyny, homophobia, and anti psychiatry, to name a few.It s still got some interesting parts, I guess, but I could only make it about halfway through [...]

      If you like your science with a heaping dose of sexism and homophobia, then this book s for you This book was so entirely awful that I thought less of the person who recommended it to me.

      Mollo la lettura pi o meno a met , quindi il mio commento vale per ci che ho letto.Sono sicura che 50 anni fa questo libro abbia avuto il suo impatto sociale e sconvolto qualcuno tra i pi moralisti, ma oggi, a mio parere, certe osservazioni non sanno pi di niente Non c una nozione che gi non sapessi, non c una riflessione che non sappia di gi superato o fastidiosamente sessista Osservare l uomo da un punto di vista zoologico interessante, ma qui viene fatto grossolanamente e con una ridondante f [...]

      I would have given The Naked Ape a 4 star rating based on its handling of human evolution and animal behavior, unfortunately 1960 s style moralizing creeped in and caused me to lower my rating to a 3 The boomer generation was really annoying in how they viewed themselves as saviors to the planet when they were really just as selfish and materialistic as their parents and less moral and responsible Even with those reservations, the descriptions of human and animal behavior and human evolution are [...]

      One doesn t pick up this sort of book looking to get off but let me tell you the opening chapters on sexuality are very arousing I had to stop reading and satisfy my er, appetite several times before moving on to the next chapters If only to stimulate yourself without anyone catching on or while posing as erudite or whatever this book is terrific.Otherwise, sure he makes many interesting points about the biological basis for certain of our human tendencies and I appreciate his attempting to cohe [...]

      I believe it would be an insult to science if I shelved this book as scientific Simply put, it is unscientific bullshit that reads like 19th century imperialist anthropology.Not a shred of evidence is there, except vague references to research shows , the fossil record proves What these evidence are you will never now, he may as well have made them up Two major issues here Mr Morris seem to lack the basic understanding of evolution though I m not a big fan, I know how Darwinian evolution is supp [...]

    19. Nikki on said:

      I think the concept of this approach to humans as an animal like any other is a brilliant one We are prone to thinking of ourselves as a species apart, when we re not, and even if we were, we could do with putting back in our places sometimes being human doesn t mean we re worthy than any other creature, all of which have their own adaptations to deal with the environment they find themselves in We re particularly versatile, yes, but because we evolved that way, not because of some special meri [...]

      Per tutto il libro Morris si riferisce a noi da intendersi come esseri umani con l epiteto di scimmioni nudi e direi che tutto sommato azzeccatissimo Come zoologo lo scrittore si propone di identificare quali siano i comportamenti che hanno permesso all essere umano di sopravvivere e anzi di emergere come specie dominante su tutte, nonostante delle sue diciamo pecche fisiche sostanziali Ne emerge un quadro anche divertente sulla sensualit dell essere umano, unica specia di scimmia ad essere spro [...]

      We are very young species We call us modern and inside us we are carrying 100 or thousand years of primitive habits with us We ve created nuclear bombs, but we can t prevent ourselves from close our eyes when a fly across our eyes We have tremendous power and but we don t know how to use that, where to use that We are sheep with a lion s claw Lion knows very well the use of his dangerous claws, but sheep doesn t He just got it overnight.As a naked app, the nature is our very essential asset Thou [...]

      Una excelente introducci n a la sociobiolog a Las hip tesis que propone el autor a veces pueden parecer descabelladas, pero si continuas leyendo, te das cuenta de que tienen mucho sentido Los apartados m s divertidos son aquellos en los que el autor explica el comportamiento sexual, la evoluci n de los caract res sexuales, y la eterna lucha entre los sistemas simp tico y parasimp tico.

    23. Ali on said:

      Studying the nature of the human race as an anthropologist would study a group of apes is as informative as it is hysterical And the added bonus of being written with overtones of an impending Cold War made the book even enjoyable.
