Anthony Ohear:
Beyond Evolution: Human Nature and the Limits of Evolutionary Explanation - nouveau livre

ISBN: 9780198250043

ID: 978019825004

Anthony O''Hear takes a stand against the fashion for explaining human behaviour in terms of evolution. He maintains, controversially, that while the theory of evolution is successful in explaining the development of the natural world in general, it is of limited value when applied to the humanworld. Because of our reflectiveness and our rationality we take on goals and ideals which cannot be justified in terms of survival-promotion or reproductive advantage. O''Hear examines the nature of human self-consciousness, and argues that evolutionary theory cannot give a satisfactory account ofsuch distinctive facets of human life as the quest for knowledge, moral sense, and the appreciation of beauty; in these we transcend our biological origins. It is our rationality that allows each of us to go beyond not only our biological but also our cultural inheritance: as the author says in thePreface, ''we are prisoners neither of our genes nor of the ideas we encounter as we each make our personal and individual way through life''.

Détails sur le livre
Beyond Evolution: Human Nature and the Limits of Evolutionary Explanation

O'Hear takes a stand against the fashion for explaining human behavior in terms of evolution. He argues that evolutionary theory, successful as it is in explaining the development of living things, cannot give a satisfactory account of such distinctive facets of human life as self-consciousness, the quest for knowledge, moral, sense, and the appreciation of beauty; in these we transcend our biological origins.
