"In this controversial, thought provoking, and brilliant book, renegade thinkers Christopher Ryan and Cacilda Jethá debunk almost everything we 'know' about sex, weaving together convergent, frequently overlooked evidence from anthropology, archaeology, primatology, anatomy, and psychosexuality to show how far from human nature monogamy really is. In Sex at Dawn, the authors expose the ancient roots of human sexuality while pointing toward a more optimistic future illuminated by our innate capacities for love, cooperation, and generosity."--Back of book

Desde los tiempos de Darwin, nos han contando que nuestra especie tiende naturalmente a la monogamia sexual. Tanto la ortodoxia científica como las instituciones religiosas y culturales mantienen que hombres y mujeres hemos evolucionado en familias en las que los unos intercambiaban sus posesiones y su protección por la fertilidad y fidelidad de las otras. Pero este discurso se desmorona. Cada día se casan menos parejas, y los índices de divorcio aumentan sin cesar, mientras el adulterio y la disminución del deseo hacen naufragar incluso matrimonios en apariencia sólidos.¿Cómo conciliar la realidad con el discurso imperante? Según los pensadores Christopher Ryan y Cacilda Jethá, es imposible. Y, en este libro provocativo y brillante, a la vez querebaten casi todo lo que sabemos del sexo, ofrecen una atrevida explicación alternativa.La tesis central de Ryan y Jethá es que los seres humanos evolucionamos en su día en grupos igualitaristas que compartían la comida, el cuidado de los niños y, a menudo, las parejas sexuales. Entretejiendo indicios convergentes--obviados habitualmente--que nos ofrecen la antropología, la arqueología, la primatología, la anatomía y la psicología sexual, los autores ponen de manifiesto lo lejos que está la monogamia de formar parte de la naturaleza humana.En el principio era el sexo, siguiendo la tradición de la mejor literatura histórica y científica, da la vuelta con insolencia a postulados injustificados y a conclusiones sin fundamento, ofreciendo a cambio una forma revolucionaria de entender por qué vivimos y amamos como lo hacemos
Sex - die wahre Geschichte by Christopher Ryan( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in German and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Monogamie ist von der Natur nicht vorgesehen. Mit dieser wissenschaftlich fundierten Erkenntnis stellen die Autoren unser Verständnis menschlicher Evolution und den angeblichen Kern unserer westlichen Gesellschaften infrage: die monogame Paarbeziehung. Dieses Buch stellt so ziemlich alles infrage, was wir bislang über Partnerschaft, Ehe und Gesellschaft geglaubt haben. Die beiden Autoren untersuchen die prähistorischen Wurzeln der menschlichen Sexualität und hinterfragen, welches Sexual- und Paarungsverhalten das natürliche ist. Die Veranlagung zur Monogamie, die Darwin und nach ihm viele Evolutionsbiologen konstatierten, ist eine krasse Fehlinterpretation. Die Autoren greifen die Wurzeln unseres Verständnisses von Ehe, Partnerschaft und Gesellschaft an und argumentieren damit gegen eine ganze Zunft, die Monogamie als genetische anthropologische Konstante betrachtet

Sex at Dawn by Cacilda Jethá( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Since Darwin's day, we've been told that sexual monogamy comes naturally to our species. Mainstream science?as well as religious and cultural institutions?has maintained that men and women evolved in families in which a man's possessions and protection were exchanged for a woman's fertility and fidelity. But this narrative is collapsing. Fewer and fewer couples are getting married, and divorce rates keep climbing as adultery and flagging libido drag down even seemingly solid marriages. How can reality be reconciled with the accepted narrative? It can't be, according to renegade thinkers Christopher Ryan and Cacilda Jeth?. While debunking almost everything we "know" about sex, they offer a bold alternative explanation in this provocative and brilliant book. Ryan and Jeth?'s central contention is that human beings evolved in egalitarian groups that shared food, child care, and, often, sexual partners. Weaving together convergent, frequently overlooked evidence from anthropology, archaeology, primatology, anatomy, and psychosexuality, the authors show how far from human nature monogamy really is. Human beings everywhere and in every era have confronted the same familiar, intimate situations in surprisingly different ways. The authors expose the ancient roots of human sexuality while pointing toward a more optimistic future illuminated by our innate capacities for love, cooperation, and generosity. With intelligence, humor, and wonder, Ryan and Jeth? show how our promiscuous past haunts our struggles over monogamy, sexual orientation, and family dynamics. They explore why long-term fidelity can be so difficult for so many; why sexual passion tends to fade even as love deepens; why many middle-aged men risk everything for transient affairs with younger women; why homosexuality persists in the face of standard evolutionary logic; and what the human body reveals about the prehistoric origins of modern sexuality. In the tradition of the best historical and scientific writing, Sex at Dawn unapologetically upends unwarranted assumptions and unfounded conclusions while offering a revolutionary understanding of why we live and love as we do
