To clarify these provoking questions, the author takes the reader on an ambitious and entertaining journey through a variety of scientific disciplines. In doing so, he creates an image of human evolution that says that our entire individual knowledge is determined - to the smallest detail - by phylogeny. ` ... before shocked humanists discard such radical theses as mere nonsense, they should not completely close their minds to the explanations of a biologist who says that we still know very little about the genetic determination of human behavior and that the invariance of many forms of behavior present in all cultures nourish the suspicion that the determining role of genes is probably far more comprehensive than we have ever dreamed.` Wolfgang Wieser, translated from his review in `Merkur` (Sept./Oct. 1999) 04From the contents:- Nature Explains Nurture- The Myth of a Wonder of Nature- Evolutionary Epistemology or the Difficulties of Getting Started- To Be or Not To Be- Chance as a Necessity- The Indivisible Individual- L = C (L equals Life, C equals Cognition)- The Reformulation of the Central Dogma- Learning: Appearances Are Deceptive- Edelman`s Errors- On the Heritability of Jazzophilia- A Superfluous Law of Evolution- The Supposed `Wonder of Language`- Intelligent Sex- How to Explain Consciousness- The Nature of Scientific Evolutions/Developments- Evolution Has Us in Its Power- The Survival of the Most Intelligent- The Cultural Struggle of Genes- Too Few Genes- A Requiem for a Wonder of Nature 目次 `Nature Explains Nurture.- The Myth of a Wonder of Nature.Evolutionary Epistemology or the Difficulties of Getting Started.- To Be or Not To Be.- Chance as Necessity.- The Indivisible Individual.- L = C (L...
