Apes and human evolution by Russell H Tuttle( )

17 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 1,544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this masterwork, Russell H. Tuttle synthesizes a vast research literature in primate evolution and behavior to explain how apes and humans evolved in relation to one another, and why humans became a bipedal, tool-making, culture-inventing species distinct from other hominoids. Along the way, he refutes the influential theory that men are essentially killer apes--sophisticated but instinctively aggressive and destructive beings. Situating humans in a broad context, Tuttle musters convincing evidence from morphology and recent fossil discoveries to reveal what early primates ate, where they slept, how they learned to walk upright, how brain and hand anatomy evolved simultaneously, and what else happened evolutionarily to cause humans to diverge from their closest relatives. Despite our genomic similarities with bonobos, chimpanzees, and gorillas, humans are unique among primates in occupying a symbolic niche of values and beliefs based on symbolically mediated cognitive processes. Although apes exhibit behaviors that strongly suggest they can think, salient elements of human culture -- speech, mating proscriptions, kinship structures, and moral codes -- are symbolic systems that are not manifest in ape niches. This encyclopedic volume is both a milestone in primatological research and a critique of what is known and yet to be discovered about human and ape potential."--Publisher's description
Paleoanthropology : morphology and paleoecology by Russell H Tuttle( )

Primate functional morphology and evolution by Russell H Tuttle( Book )

22 editions published between 1975 and 2011 in English and held by 988 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Apes of the world : their social behavior, communication, mentality, and ecology by Russell H Tuttle( Book )

12 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 758 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A synthesis of results from ecological, naturalistic behavioral, comparative psychological, and humanoid language research on apes. Based on more than 1,360 references from scientific journals, monographs, symposium volumes, and other public sources, the book contains a wealth of current information on the taxonomy, ecology, postural and locomotive behavior, natural communications, and social behavior of the apes. Topical discussions in the book are organized to show the extent of progress, including the development of new research questions, and the way our views of apes have changed as new information has become available since 1929
Socioecology and psychology of primates by Russell H Tuttle( Book )

29 editions published between 1975 and 2011 in English and German and held by 629 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Functional and evolutionary biology of primates by Russell H Tuttle( Book )

24 editions published between 1972 and 2017 in English and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These original contributions on the evolution of primates and the techniques for studying the subject cover an enormous range of material and incorporate the work of specialists from many different fields, showing the necessity of a multidisciplinary approach to problems of primate morphology and phylogeny. Collectively, they demonstrate the concerns and methods of leading contemporary workers in this and related fields. Each contributor shows his way of attacking fundamental problems of evolutionary primatology."--Provided by publisher

Photographic and descriptive musculoskeletal atlas of gorilla : with notes on the attachments, variations, innervation, synonymy, and weight of the muscles by Rui Diogo( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This first photographic and descriptive musculoskeletal Atlas of Gorilla differs from previous works done with gorillas and other primates in various ways. First, it includes numerous detailed high-quality photographs of musculoskeletal structures from most anatomical regions of the body. Second, it includes textual information about the attachments, innervation and weight of the reported muscles. Third, it is based on the dissections of various fresh gorillas, as well as on an extensive review of the works published by other authors, thus providing an updated review of the anatomical variations within gorillas as well as an extensive list of the synonyms used in the literature to designate the structures reported here. Fourth, the data previously obtained in the authors' dissections of numerous other primates, as well as of numerous other vertebrates, proved to be crucial for examining and understanding the homologies between the muscular structures of gorillas, humans, and other taxa. This Atlas will be of interest to students, teachers and researchers working in fields such as primatology, comparative anatomy, functional morphology, zoology, or physical anthropology, as well as to those medical students, doctors and researchers who are interested in understanding the origin, evolution, homology and variations of the musculoskeletal structures of humans"--
GENESIS OF PLATO'S THOUGHT : second edition by Alban Dewes Winspear( )

2 editions published between 2010 and 2017 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is often said that to understand Plato we must understand his times. Many readers who might accept without question this saying of historical criticism may still wonder why we should think it necessary to begin our enquiry as far back as Homer and beyond. In the case of Plato there is an even greater need to pursue the argument back to the very beginnings of the historical period in which he lived and worked. It is quite impossible to understand the genesis of Plato's ideas without understanding the profound change that Greek society underwent in the post-Homeric period that preceded him. This change in social structure created a mercantile, progressive Greek society, one which laid the foundations for all the subsequent history of Europe and the West. The Genesis of Plato's Thought is particularly highly regarded because it departs vigorously from the traditional abstract, static view of Plato's thought. Winspear's volume on Plato's thought traces, in a realistic fashion, the deep-reaching social and economic roots of Plato's concept of the state and society. Winspear believes that nowhere can the social roots of philosophy be more sharply seen and more firmly apprehended than when one is dealing with the origins of Western philosophy among the Greeks. His book contains the body of information which any reader should have if they wish to approach Plato as a historical figure. To make the book useful to a wide circle of readers, brief biographical identifications for the various important figures of Greek life are introduced in the text."--Provided by publisher
