The author draws on anthropology, history, literature, developmental psychology, and animal behavior to examine "the distinct biological and genetic elements that constitute maternal instinct" and to explain "why age-old tensions between the sexes persist and are being played out today in efforts to control women's reproductive choices."--Jacket

Mothers and others : the evolutionary origins of mutual understanding by Sarah Blaffer Hrdy( Book )

28 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 962 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Somewhere in Africa, more than a million years ago, a line of apes began to rear their young differently than their Great Ape ancestors. From this new form of care came new ways of engaging and understanding each other. How such singular human capacities evolved, and how they have kept us alive for thousands of generations, is the mystery revealed in this bold and wide-ranging new vision of human emotional evolution." "Mothers and Others finds the key in the primatologically unique length of human childhood. If the young were to survive in a world of scarce food, they needed to be cared for, not only by their mothers but also by siblings, aunts, fathers, friends - and, with any luck, grandmothers. Out of this complicated and contingent form of childrearing, Sarah Hrdy argues, came the human capacity for understanding others. Mothers and others teach us who will care, and who will not"--Jacket

Mother nature : maternal instincts and how they shape the human species by Sarah Blaffer Hrdy( Book )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mother Nature presents a radical new way of understanding how mothers act and why, and how this new understanding is changing the way scientists think about how evolution works." "Drawing on anthropology, history, literature, developmental psychology, and animal behavior, Sarah Hrdy examines the distinct biological and genetic elements that constitute maternal instinct. She strips away the biases implicit in conventional stereotypes of female nature to give us very different and provocative perspectives on maternal ambivalence, the links between maternity and ambition, mother love and sexual love, and she explains why age-old tensions between the sexes persist and are being played out today in efforts to control women's reproductive choices."--Jacket

46 editions published between 1981 and 2005 in 6 languages and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hrdy's account of the range of behaviours in species of primates expands the concept of female nature to include the full range of selection pressures on females, and reminds us of the true complexity and dynamism of the evolutionary story
Mother nature : natural selection and the female of the species by Sarah Blaffer Hrdy( Book )

18 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author argues that evolution is controlled by the female of the species. She is more diverse, deadlier and more adaptable than the male, and the notion of maternal instinct, with its baggage of self-sacrifice, gentleness and devotion is a misapprehension

Comment nous sommes devenus humains : les origines de l'empathie by Sarah Blaffer Hrdy( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in French and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quelque part en Afrique, il y a plus d'un million d'années de cela, une lignée de singes a commencé à élever ses petits différemment de leurs ancêtres les grands singes. De cette nouvelle forme de soins sont nées de nouvelles façons d'entrer en relation et de se comprendre mutuellement. Comment ces aptitudes humaines si particulières ont évolué, et comment elles ont permis de nous maintenir en vie pendant des milliers de générations, tel est le mystère révélé par ce brillant et audacieux regard porté sur l'évolution émotionnelle humaine. Comment nous sommes devenus humains en trouve la clef dans la longue durée de l'enfance humaine, fait unique chez les primates. Si les petits doivent survivre dans un monde où la nourriture est rare et les prédateurs dangereux, il faut que non seulement leurs mères s'occupent d'eux, mais aussi leurs frères et soeurs, leurs tantes, leurs pères, leurs amis, et - s'ils sont chanceux - leurs grands-mères. C'est de cette forme d'éducation complexe, affirme Sarah Blaffer Hrdy, qu'est née notre capacité humaine à déchiffrer les pensées et les intentions de ceux qui nous entourent. Riche, vivant, inspirant, ce voyage à travers l'enfance nous mène des ouistitis aux chimpanzés, en passant par les rats-taupes nus et les geais buissonniers, mais nous fait aussi découvrir le mode de vie des groupes de chasseurs-cueilleurs contemporains, pour éclairer des questions très actuelles : de quoi ont vraiment besoin les jeunes mères et leurs bébés ? Pourquoi les relations familiales et amicales des femmes entre elles sont si importantes ? Quelle est la place des pères dans l'éducation, et comment peuvent-ils la prendre pleinement ? Comment offrir aux tout-petits les conditions pour qu'ils développent leur sens inné de l'empathie ? Sur ces questions et bien d'autres, Comment nous sommes devenus humains offre des réponses au plus près des connaissances scientifiques, dans une éblouissante fresque du passé et de l'avenir des émotions humaines

Attachment and bonding : a new synthesis by Carol Sue Carter( )

3 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation Attachment and bonding are evolved processes; the mechanisms that permit the development of selective social bonds are assumed to be very ancient, based on neural circuitry rooted deep in mammalian evolution, but the nature and timing of these processes and their ultimate and proximate causes are only beginning to be understood. In this Dahlem Workshop Report, scientists from different disciplines--including anthropology, psychology, psychiatry, and behavioral biology--come together to explore the concepts of attachment and bonding from diverse perspectives. In their studies they seek to understand the causes or the consequences of attachment and bonding in general and their different qualities in individual development in particular. They address such questions as biobehavioral processes in attachment and bonding; early social attachment and its influences on later patterns of behavior; bonding later in life; and adaptive and maladaptive (or pathological) outcomes. The studies confirm that social bonds have consequences for virtually all aspects of behavior and may be protective in the face of both physical and emotional challenges
