12 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 2,028 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why Gods persist : a scientific approach to religion by Robert A Hinde( )

38 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 1,970 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Every human society has engaged in religious practices. In the past religions have provided answers to the basic questions of life: Who am I? Why am I here? What happens when I die? In the modern world, religious answers to these questions are unacceptable to many, yet religions continue to persist."--BOOK JACKET. "Religions involve structural beliefs, narratives, rituals, moral codes, religious experience and social aspects. Robert Hinde argues that each of these arises from the nature of humankind. For example, belief in a deity satisfies the human tendency to attribute events to causes, and can reduce anxiety. Or narratives, such as those presented in gospels, appeal in part because we see our own lives as unfolding narratives."--Jacket

Why good is good : the sources of morality by Robert A Hinde( )

10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 764 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What can science tell us about morality? It is often said that science - because it tells us about the way the world is and not how it ought to be - can have nothing to say about ethical matters; yet scientists increasingly tell us that evolutionary biology has much to tell us about our values. This new book argues that only a multidisciplinary approach will enable us to understand morality." "The multidisciplinary nature of this book makes it accessible to anyone interested in the relation of ethics to biology, social science and the humanities."--Jacket

Individuals, relationships & culture : links between ethology and the social sciences by Robert A Hinde( Book )

20 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 587 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher description: Both biologists and social scientists have much to say about human behaviour. Yet attempts to combine their approaches to provide a deeper understanding of human nature have not so far been generally successful. First published in 1987, this book offered an original way of bridging the gap between them. The key to bringing the two approaches together is, Professor Hinde suggests, to recognise crucial distinctions between levels of social complexity (individuals, interactions, relationships and groups), whilst at the same time bearing in mind that all are processes in dialectical relations with each other and with the socio-cultural structure of institutions, beliefs, values, norms and so on. Professor Hinde argues that principles derived from ethology are essential for understanding some aspects of behaviour at the lower levels of social complexity, but have severe limitations at higher ones. This innovative approach will interest research workers, lecturers and students of psychology, biology, anthropology and sociology, as well as other readers seeking a comprehensive understanding of the nature of human social behaviour
