FREE READ ✓ PLANTHIREINBATH.CO.UK î Christopher Ryan Convergentes obviados habitualmente ue nos ofrecen la antropología la arueología la primatología la anatomía y la psicología sexual los autores ponen de manifiesto lo lejos ue está la monogamia de formar parte de la naturaleza humanaEn el principio era el sexo siguiendo la tradición de la mejor literatura histórica y científica da la vuelta con insolencia a postulados injustificados y a conclusiones sin fundamento ofreciendo a cambio una forma revolucionaria de entender por ué vivimos y amamos como lo hacemo. Overrated mostly unfunny but overly glib using the same bad logic he accuses the monogamy pushers of this book which is basically shilling for open relationships vis a vis evolutionary psychology is intellectually dishonest AND irritating which is uite a feat I can't believe Dan Savage pushed this crap There are better arguments for new takes on monogamy open relationships and polyamory out there we don't need to cloak them in bad gender essentialist science

Sex at Dawn The Prehistoric Origins of Modern SexualityRagar incluso matrimonios en apariencia sólidos¿Cómo conciliar la realidad con el discurso imperante Según los pensadores Christopher Ryan y Cacilda Jethá es imposible Y en este libro provocativo y brillante a la vez uerebaten casi todo lo ue «sabemos» del sexo ofrecen una atrevida explicación alternativaLa tesis central de Ryan y Jethá es ue los seres humanos evolucionamos en su día en grupos igualitaristas ue compartían la comida el cuidado de los niños y a menudo las parejas sexuales Entretejiendo indicios. I rarely stop reading books before I'm done and I've read a lot of pretty bad books as a result but I think I will with this one The book has two serious problems first it misrepresents or maybe misunderstands the standard model of human sexuality from ev biology Perhaps because they are so focused on the most extreme form of ev psych they repeatedly oversimplify things and then accuse various authors eg Darwin of defending such oversimplified theories because of sexism Second their positive theory eg that humans were polygamous until about 10000 years ago; and basically lived long happy war free sex filled lives until the agriculture revolution is radically undersupported by the evidence You wouldn't know this from reading the book though because they repeatedly cherry pick evidence and consistently ignore what most practicing scientists would say are the reasons they believe this model hint it's not because Steven Pinker did a study of dating strategies in college age students or whateverIn short this is pop science at its worse it deliberately distorts science for ideological ends; it ignores evidence for rival theories; it presents biased and uncharitable pictures of other scientists; and the conclusion it defends seems to be mostly wish fulfillment I think this is by far the meanest book review I've ever written if that means anything
