Sapiens : a brief history of humankind by Yuval N Harari( Book )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in Spanish and English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En De animales a dioses Yuval Noah Harari traza una breve historia de la humanidad, desde los primeros humanos que caminaron sobre la Tierra hasta los radicales y a veces devastadores avances de las tres grandes revoluciones que nuestra especie ha protagonizado: la cognitiva, la agrícola y la científica. A partir de hallazgos de disciplinas tan diversas como la biología, la antropología, la paleontología o la economía, Harari explora cómo las grandes corrientes de la historia han modelado nuestra sociedad, los animales y las plantas que nos rodean e incluso nuestras personalidades. ¿Hemos ganado en felicidad a medida que ha avanzado la historia? ¿Seremos capaces de liberar alguna vez nuestra conducta de la herencia del pasado? ¿Podemos hacer algo para influir en los siglos futuros?"-- Provided by publisher
Homo Deus : breve historia del mañana by Yuval N Harari( Book )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in Spanish and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the same insight and clarity that made Sapiens an international hit and a New York Times bestseller, Harari maps out our future. Over the past century humankind has managed to do the impossible and rein in famine, plague, and war. This may seem hard to accept, but, as Harari explains in his trademark style--thorough, yet riveting--famine, plague and war have been transformed from incomprehensible and uncontrollable forces of nature into manageable challenges. For the first time ever, more people die from eating too much than from eating too little; more people die from old age than from infectious diseases; and more people commit suicide than are killed by soldiers, terrorists and criminals put together. The average American is a thousand times more likely to die from binging at McDonalds than from being blown up by Al Qaeda. What then will replace famine, plague, and war at the top of the human agenda? As the self-made gods of planet earth, what destinies will we set ourselves, and which quests will we undertake? Homo Deus explores the projects, dreams and nightmares that will shape the twenty-first century--from overcoming death to creating artificial life. It asks the fundamental questions: Where do we go from here? And how will we protect this fragile world from our own destructive powers? This is the next stage of evolution. This is Homo Deus. --Amazon

Descartes' error : emotion, reason, and the human brain by Antonio R Damasio( Book )

15 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in Spanish and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Although I cannot tell for certain what sparked my interest in the neural underpinnings of reason, I do know when I became convinced that the traditional views on the nature of rationality could not be correct." Thus begins a book that takes the reader on a journey of discovery, from the story of Phineas Gage, the famous nineteenth-century case of behavioral change that followed brain damage, to the contemporary recreation of Gage's brain; and from the doubts of a young neurologist to a testable hypothesis concerning the emotions and their fundamental role in rational human behavior." "Drawing on his experiences with neurological patients affected by brain damage (his laboratory is recognized worldwide as the foremost center for the study of such patients), Antonio Damasio shows how the absence of emotion and feeling can break down rationality. In the course of explaining how emotions and feelings contribute to reason and to adaptive social behavior, Damasio also offers a novel perspective on what emotions and feelings actually are: a direct sensing of our own body states, a link between the body and its survival-oriented regulations, on the one hand, and consciousness, on the other." "Descartes' Error leads us to conclude that human organisms are endowed from the very beginning with a spirited passion for making choices, which the social mind can use to build rational behavior."--Jacket

En busca de Spinoza : neurobiología de la emoción y los sentimientos by Antonio R Damasio( Book )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2016 in Spanish and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aunque muchos de los científicos que intentan averiguar cómo comprendemos y pensamos los humanos parecen haberse olvidado de ello, las emociones del tipo de, por ejemplo, la alegría, la tristeza, la envidia o la admiración desempeñan un papel fundamental en nuestras vidas y son esenciales para entender realmente en qué consiste eso que denominamos pensamiento humano. Antonio Damasio, el neurólogo que ha dedicado su vida al estudio de las bases neurobiológicas de la vida humana, no es, ciertamente, uno de esos científicos en cuyos trabajos las emociones y sentimientos no encuentran lugar. En este nuevo libro, el profesor Damasio se suma, aunque desde el lado de la ciencia, de las neurociencias, a una tradición no muy frecuentada, cierto es que tiene en el filósofo holandés Spinoza (que consideraba que los sentimientos y emociones constituían los aspectos centrales de la humanidad) uno de sus principales exponentes. Nadie debería dejar de leer este En busca de Spinoza, obra tan actual como imprescindible para comprender el importante papel que juegan los sentimientos y cómo explica la biología nuestros mecanismos de supervivencia necesaria
