MEAN GENES From Sex to Money to Food: Taming Our Primal Instincts, Burnham, Terry & Phelan, Jay
1 Burnham, Terry & Phelan, Jay MEAN GENES From Sex to Money to Food: Taming Our Primal Instincts
Perseus 2000 0738202304 / 9780738202303 First Edition Hardcover Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Excellent condition, only very light wear overall. Jacket has a little light soiling. 263 pages. Interior clean and unmarked. Publishers Weekly: "Genes are credited or blamed these days for more and more human behaviors and predicaments, but gambling, courtesy and even greed? Phelan, a professor of economics at Harvard, and Burnham, a biology professor at UCLA, focus not on the mechanisms of particular genes but on the effects of more general evolutionary patterns. In this enormously entertaining sociobiological overview, they argue that humans are well adapted to the environment in which we originated, but since we are no longer hunter-gatherers, instincts that evolved under those conditions can lead to harmful excess in today's world...."

MATTER AND CONSCIOUSNESS, Churchland, Paul
2 Churchland, Paul MATTER AND CONSCIOUSNESS
MIT Press 1986 0262530503 / 9780262530507 Softcover Good; 
Cover has moderate edge/corner wear, some creasing. About the first 1/3 of pages have some highlighting, rest of pages are clean and unmarked. B/w illus. 164 pages. In Matter and Consciousness, Paul Churchland clearly presents the advantages and disadvantages of such difficult issues in philosophy of mind as behaviorism, reductive materialism, functionalism, and eliminative materialism. Churchland organizes and clarifies the new theoretical and experimental results of the natural sciences for a wider philosophical audience, observing that this research bears directly on questions concerning the basic elements of cognitive activity and their implementation in real physical systems. (How is it, he asks, that living creatures perform some cognitive tasks so swiftly and easily, where computers do them only badly or not at all? ) Most significant for philosophy, Churchland asserts, is the support these results tend to give to the reductive and the eliminative versions of materialism. Paul M. Churchland is Professor of Philosophy at the University of California, San Diego. (os); 8vo

What accounts for the increasing prevalence of violence and anxiety in our world? In this 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 behavioruntil they are confined. Similarly, the human propensity toward antisocial and sociopathic behavior is intensified in todays 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. " [140-osl]
