"In this remarkable book, one of the world's leading biologists presents lucidly (and, often, with dry irony) what we now know about the total human organism. A specialist in the science of behavior in animals and men, Professor Barnett's purpose here is to consider the various branches of human biology in the light of the contributions each can make to contemporary problems...Confronting pressing and controversial questions objectively and in elegant, non-technical prose, The Human Species has a universality of appeal for the general reader" -- Book jacket

The story of rats : their impact on us, and our impact on them by S. A Barnett( )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 900 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Are rats still a threat to our health and food? Do they think? Is it true that wild rats sometimes die, unwounded, from social stress? Can studies of rat societies tell us anything useful about our own social lives?" "Love them or loathe them, everyone has a rat story. Throughout history vast numbers of rats of many species have shared our space, our food and our diseases and they continue to do so." "Yet The Story of Rats is more than a tale about how people and rats live together. It is about science and scientists, the problems they solve and fail to solve, and the scope and imperfections of our scientific knowledge of the world. It is a book for those who love rats or fear them: for the curious, the science literate and non-literate alike."--Jacket
The rat : a study in behavior by S. A Barnett( Book )

27 editions published between 1975 and 2017 in English and held by 807 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The laws of animal behavior have been revised and revealed through research performed by zoologists, physiologists and experimental psychologists. Each has contributed much. Their main meeting ground has been the study of mammals, especially rats. This classic book is unique in bringing together the principal conclusions of these researchers in a compact, well illustrated, and lucid form. The author himself made important original contributions to wild rat behavior; his account of "white rat psychology" and of relevant work on other species is equally authoritative. Experience as a teacher enabled him to write an unusually logical and comprehensive text, suitable for students of zoology, psychology and medicine. This book belongs to no particular school of biology or psychology. Rather it admits the work of all schools and strict adherence to none. The principal topics covered include: movement in the living space; feeding behavior; social and reproductive behavior; the analysis of "instinct"; the analysis of learned behavior; "motivation" and "drive"; the brain and behavior. The book includes a full, carefully selected bibliography, current up to the time of original publication of the original edition."--Provided by publisher

15 editions published in 1981 in English and Undetermined and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Biology and freedom : an essay on the implications of human ethology by S. A Barnett( Book )

15 editions published between 1988 and 2005 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Biology and Freedom, first published in 1989, is an essay on human nature: an attempt to make a just assessment of a species often presented as predominantly and unavoidably violent, grasping, selfish and stupid. Likening human beings to animals is a traditional method of influencing attitudes on morals and politics. But in this book Professor Barnett shows that modern ethology, experimental psychology, genetics and evolutionary theory give the now fashionable misanthropy no authentic support. In doing so he asks whether the theory of evolution has any bearing on Machiavellianism in politics or the concept of original sin; and whether laboratory experiments on the effects of reward and punishment tell us anything about the enigma of free will. Combining the findings of biology with logic and humour, Professor Barnett gives a lucid alternative portrait of humanity in which he stresses the questions that the complexities of human existence will raise long after current myths have faded. This book is for all interested in human nature and the future of human society

Man and aggression by Ashley Montagu( Book )

5 editions published between 1969 and 1973 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The comparatively new science of ethology, or the study of the behavior of different species, has given rise to a number of hypotheses about manʹs instinctual nature. A conception of manʹs inborn aggressive drive -- a twentieth-century form of neo social Darwinism advanced by the eminent ethologist Konrad Lorenz, and popularized in books by Robert Ardrey -- has recently gained a wider acceptance than scientific objectivity can support. In this volume, edited by a distinguished anthropology and social biologist, fourteen experts offer a critique of this Hobbesian view of man, which is related to and possibly older than the doctrine of original sin. In the editorʹs words, their purpose is to put the record straight, to correct what threatens to become an epidemic error concerning the causes of manʹs aggression, and to redirect attention to a consideration of the real causes of such behavior. -- Back cover
