The Human Condition (Gebundene Ausgabe)

Reihe: Developments in Primatology: Progress and Prospects

Springer-Verlag GmbH, Springer US, Juli 2011

207 S. - Sprache: Englisch - 242x164x25 mm Book

ISBN: 1441993525 EAN: 9781441993526

This book summarizes the work of several decades, culminating in a revolutionary model of recent human evolution. It challenges current consensus views fundamentally, presenting in its support a mass of evidence, much of which has never been assembled before. This evidence derives primarily from archaeology, paleoanthropology, genetics, clinical psychology, neurosciences, linguistics and cognitive sciences. No even remotely similar thesis of recent human origins has ever been published, but some of the key elements of this book have been published by the author in major refereed journals in the last two years. Its implications are far-reaching and profoundly affect the way we perceive ourselves as a species. This book about what it means to be human is heavily referenced, with a bibliography of many hundreds of scientific entries.

Über den Autor

Robert G. Bednarik, born in Vienna but an Australian since 1970, contradicts norms. He has undertaken numerous expeditions crossing the sea on rafts built with stone tools, but he cannot swim; he has produced 1165 academic publications, including many books, but has no formal education; he edits three scientific journals and two series of monographs, but not in his native language. As a complete autodidact, he regards himself as ignorant as did Socrates. Consequently his principal interest is the origin of the human ability to create constructs of reality, and in a wide variety of fields providing supplementary information in that quest.


From the reviews:"Bednarik (International Federation of Rock Art Organizations), an Australia-based scholar, has spent his enormously productive career challenging perceived wisdom. ... The author assembles the evidence and arguments for an alternative theory of human origins. The theory includes a multiregional origin of humans from robust hominids and so challenges the 'out of Africa' model of a single origin from gracile hominids. ... Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals." (B. K. Hall, Choice, Vol. 49 (6), February, 2012)
