The Biology of Emotions

The Biology of Emotions Lowest new price: $40.00
Lowest used price: $7.00
List price: $21.95
Author: Jean-Didier Vincent

What is love? Can we explain Romeo's love for Juliet? What are desire, pleasure, sadness and the taste for power and domination? In short, how do we make sense of our passions? Going beyond the traditional dichotomy of body and soul, of the reasonable brain and the passionate body, Jean-Didier Vincent proposes a new theory of emotions which aims to harmonize our understanding of humankind. Not that he reduces love to an equation. On the contrary, he aims to show what love and beauty mean in a book whose humour is paralleled by its serious intellectual endeavour.

Human Ethology (Foundations of Human Behavior)

Human Ethology (Foundations of Human Behavior) Lowest new price: $75.11
Lowest used price: $4.99
List price: $85.95
Author: Irenaus Eibl-Eibesfeldt

With the discovery of conditioned reflexes by I. P. Pavlov, the possibilities for experimenting, following the example set by the classical, exact sciences, were made available to the behavioral sciences. Many psychologists hoped that the component parts of behavior had also been found from which the entire, multifaceted cosmos of behavior could then be constructed. An experimentally oriented psychology subsequently developed including the influential school of behaviorism.

This first text on human ethology presents itself as a unified work, even though not every area could be treated with equal depth. For example, a branch of ethology has developed in the past decade which places particular emphasis on ecology and population genetics. This field, known as sociobiology, has enriched discussion beyond the boundaries of behavioral biology through its stimulating, and often provocative, theses.

After vigorous debates between behaviorists, anthropologists, and sociologists, we have entered a period of exchange of thoughts and a mutual approach, which in many instances has led to cooperative projects of researchers from different disciplines. This work offers a biological point of view for discussion and includes data from the author's cross-cultural work and research from the staff of his institute. It confirms, above all else, the astonishing unity of mankind and paints a basically positive picture of how we are moved by the same passions, jealousies, friendliness, and active curiosity.

The need to understand ourselves has never been as great as it is today. An ideologically torn humanity struggles for its survival. Our species, does not know how it should compensate its workers, and it experiments with various economic systems, constitutions, and forms of government. It struggles for freedom and stumbles into newer conflicts. Population growth is apparently completely out of hand, and at the same time many resources are being depleted. We must consider our existence rationally in order to understand it, but certainly not with cold, calculating reason but with the warm feeling of a heart concerned for the welfare of later generations.

Hormones and Behaviour: A Psychological Approach Lowest new price: $25.00
Lowest used price: $8.94
List price: $65.99
Author: Dr Nick Neave
Brand: Brand: Cambridge University Press

Recent advances in non-invasive sampling techniques have led to an increase in the study of hormones and behaviour. Behaviour is complex but can be explained to a large degree by interactions between various psychological and physiological components, such as the interplay between hormonal and psychological systems. This new textbook from Nick Neave offers a detailed introduction to the fascinating science of behavioural endocrinology from a psychological perspective, examining the relationships between hormones and behaviour in both humans and animals. Neave explains the endocrine system and the ways in which hormones can influence brain structure and function, and presents a series of examples to demonstrate how hormones can influence specific behaviours, including sexual determination and differentiation, neurological differentiation, parental behaviours, aggressive behaviours and cognition. This introductory textbook will appeal to second and third year social science undergraduate students in psychology and biomedicine.
