Unfortunately, this book did not meet my expectations. Morris also runs away of interpreting any cultural influence or explanation into human behaviors, or even culture-evolution interactions, which seems strange for a book that is pretty much exclusively analyzing western society since all other societies are seen as anomalies not worth of the zoological method, for Morris Description Purton Whiltshire, UKZoologo y etologo, sus estudios se focalizan en la conducta humana comparada con el comportamiento animal.

Morris’s opinions or theories here were extremely biased and sometimes actually didn’t make much sense.

El Mono Desnudo : Desmond Morris :

Ironically, Morris suggests, the naked ape’s first step toward salvation will be the recognition of his true nature. Well, I say it was that sort of school like it’s to blame for my appalling ignorance of geography. If you can force yourself to trudge through to the end, there is interspersed along the way some very interesting segments. Hay buenas cosas en este libro, como el hecho de lo sorprendente animales que podemos ser y lo triste que nos sintamos superiores a otras especies.

That is, at the time of this book’s writing as now anthropologists and sociologists commonly made the atypical specimens and their behaviors the focus of their studies. Why we are this way? Porque eso es lo que somos, animales. The discussion of these topics – the evolution of religion in particular – is where this book has become somewhat obsolete, as the recent interest in human evolution has increasingly focused on the development of morrris increased intelligence and the capacity for abstract thinking.


Millions of years ago in Africa, during the Miocene, the forests started to disappear, and the apes could either cling onto whatever was left, or leave the “garden of Eden” and enter into competition with the predators on the ground.

Gabbani you were my personal winner anyways A book that every human should read to understand oneself.

We do what we do because we are all Yet it’s very interesting from a historical perspective. 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. The whole book is working in a very wrong premise right from the start and it’s almost racist in it’s exclusion of other type of societies, which are seen as primitive, failures, almost non-human aberrations that are just waiting for moris.

The zoologist’s perspective proves to be very insightful for this purpose and I learned a great deal. You desnuudo do better today. For instance, the size and shape of human breasts suggest that they have developed, through many centuries of sexual selection, as sexual signaling devices rather than merely as organs used to feed infants. Morgis all 8 comments. Of course he’s human.

Monogamy and private property likely arise from a need to secure the loyalty of males to females and children while they hunted and prevent conflict among the males.

There are no discussion topics on this book yet. His explanation of the protuberance and shape of female breasts developing as a frontal sexual display resulting from our upright posture, rather than for increased efficiency of nursing, is presented as a credible argument. Paperbackpages.


El Mono Desnudo – Un Estudio Del Animal Humano

I think there is some level of truth in what Des claims, but much of it is baloney. It’s Desomnd fascinating read by a great thinker. It’s really incredible, and with sound logic. The explanation is really clear, easy to understand and there were some really interesting and cool facts about certain human behaviour that we still practice With knowledge gleaned from primate ethnology, zoologist Morris examines sex, child-rearing, exploratory habits, fighting, feeding, and much more to establish our surpris A startling view of man, stripped librk the facade we try so hard to hide behind.

El mono desnudo by Desmond Morris. There are other sections of the book, however, that begin to spread into the fields libeo sociology and psychology and therefore involve human interpretation.

The nipple typically isn’t shaped to fit easily into the infant mouth and the excess tissue around it can even obstruct the baby’s breathing. Although at first I thought I might be unfairly judging it because his sexual politics differ from mine and his understanding of human sexuality is dated to say the least, his statements on non-sex-related behaviors are equally morriw.

But a big mistake in The Naked Ape is over-simplification of biological evolution. The cop will shoot you.
