Human instinct by Robert Winston( Book )

37 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 538 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

Flesh and blood : sibling rivalry( Visual )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why are siblings often so different? Are "only" children lucky or disadvantaged? What are the long-term effects of birth order and sibling relationships? This program underscores recent theories that suggest relationships among a nuclear family's children-rather than those between parent and offspring-are the most meaningful to an individual's growth. Monitoring a group of 25 six-year-olds, the program follows experiments that highlight the significance of sibling rivalry and bonding. Among the lively subjects are James and his older sister Bernie, whose relationship is tested by their unstable living situation; twins Alice and Charles and their intrusive younger brother William; and Het Shah, an only child whose parents fear they have spoiled her

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

13 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 233 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
