Human instinct by Robert M. L Winston( Book )

25 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few people have a problem with the idea that humans are descended from apes. But while people believe that our general shape and structure are derived from other creatures, few consider, let alone accept, the psychological implications. Man not only looks, moves and breathes like an ape, he also thinks like one. It is back in our primeval past that we find the first clues to the understanding of our human instincts." "But how well do instincts equip us for the twenty-first century? Do instincts help or hinder us as we deal with large anonymous cities, low-level stress, the battle of the sexes and the fracturing of communal life? In this erudite and fascinating book, which accompanies a major BBCI television series, Robert Winston takes us on a journey deep into the human mind in search of the answers to these questions and many more. Along the way he takes a very personal look at the relationship between science and religion, and explores those instincts that make us peculiarly human."--Jacket

"The Story of God is a book that examines the relationship between science and religion across time, beginning with the primitive worship of our early ancestors and concluding with a vivid portrait of faith in the modern world. Robert Winston provides a unique perspective: he writes as a respected scientist who is also committed to Judaism, and offers a challenging, sometimes startling personal discourse to the debate. Grand in scope, adventurous in lone, the book traces a line across continents, cultures and eras."--BOOK JACKET
The humanmind : and how to make the most of it by Robert M. L Winston( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and Turkish and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"New technological developments help us understand how the brain gives rise to the human mind. We can now see the extraordinary complexity of the brain's circuits, watch which regions use energy and which nerve cells generate electricity as we fall in love, tell a lie or dream of a lottery win. And inside the 100 billion cells of this rubbery network is something remarkable: you." "In this entertaining and accessible book, Robert Winston takes us deep into the workings of the human mind, revealing how our senses, emotions and personality are the result of a ballet of genes and environment that shapes the path of our lives. Here, as he explains how memories are formed and lost, and how the everchanging brain is responsible for toddler tantrums, teenage angst and the battle of the sexes, he also reveals the truth behind extrasensory perception, deja vu and out-of-body experiences." "And as we discover how we can boost our intelligence, tap into creative powers we never knew we had, break old habits and keep our brains fit and active as we enter old age, we also face one great paradox. Because the human mind is all we have to enable us to understand it, it is perfectly possible that science may never quite explain everything about the remarkable mechanism that makes each of us unique. Book jacket."--Jacket

Bad ideas? : an arresting history of our inventions by Robert M. L Winston( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We are born with the instinct to create and invent. Indeed our ability to do so is what separates us from the rest of the animal world. The moment man first converted a stone to a useful tool set him on a relentless path towards greater power over his environment. But have our creative ideas always produced desirable results in line with their original good intention? Have they always served us well?" "Bad Ideas? traces the history of our attempts at self-improvement but also questions their value. The dubious consequences of the development of weaponry, for example, are self-evident. But what of apparently more innocuous advances such as farming, writing or medicine and the harvesting of fire? Science has produced huge good but has also had unforeseen consequences which seem increasingly to threaten our existence. Can science and scientists find solutions to the perils which now menace us?" "We join Robert Winston on a thrilling journey from our earliest days to the present, written against a huge historical canvas. We learn about the history of science and engineering, following the unexpected twists and turns of progress. We meet some key individuals along the way and share quirky anecdotes about their lives and brainwaves. Inspiring, unusual and at times controversial, Bad Ideas? assesses the past and looks forward to the opportunities and ethical challenges of the future. In so doing it celebrates man's extraordinary capacity for achievement and offers a hopeful way forward to protect humanity against what sometimes seem like bad ideas."--Jacket

Ice babies( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Freezing embryos gives people a chance to have children even though they may be faced with a catastrophic illness. This episode introduces Hilary Spanswick, who is in fear for her life because of breast cancer, which signals the end of her hopes of motherhood. There's one option: freezing embryos. It's a risk, as the fertility drugs could encourage her cancer. If it works, it will be her only chance of having a baby. Frozen embryos, however, can lead to problems. Natallie Evans, for example, froze six embryos with her partner, but when they split up, he demanded that the embryos be destroyed. Professor Robert Winston meets Natallie to explore the question of who should own the ice babies
Gift of life( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this episode, Bonny, who has been infertile for 17 years, pins her hopes for a baby on a pioneering treatment: the transplantation of someone else's working ovary into her own body. The donor can only be her identical twin, Crystal. If the operation is successful, it will pose a difficult question: will any resulting children be Bonny's, or Crystal's? Until 2005, eggs or sperm could be donated anonymously, so donor-conceived children could never trace their biological parents. Professor Robert Winston asks a man born from donated sperm how it feels to know that he will never find his father, and the encounter leads to a moving revelation about Winston's own childhood
