Evolution's Rainbow

Evolution's Rainbow Diversity Gender And Sexuality In Nature And People [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Evolution's Rainbow by Joan Roughgarden Book Summary:

In this innovative celebration of diversity and affirmation of individuality in animals and humans, Joan Roughgarden challenges accepted wisdom about gender identity and sexual orientation. A distinguished evolutionary biologist, Roughgarden takes on the medical establishment, the Bible, social science—and even Darwin himself. She leads the reader through a fascinating discussion of diversity in gender and sexuality among fish, reptiles, amphibians, birds, and mammals, including primates. Evolution's Rainbow explains how this diversity develops from the action of genes and hormones and how people come to differ from each other in all aspects of body and behavior. Roughgarden reconstructs primary science in light of feminist, gay, and transgender criticism and redefines our understanding of sex, gender, and sexuality. Witty, playful, and daring, this book will revolutionize our understanding of sexuality. Roughgarden argues that principal elements of Darwinian sexual selection theory are false and suggests a new theory that emphasizes social inclusion and control of access to resources and mating opportunity. She disputes a range of scientific and medical concepts, including Wilson's genetic determinism of behavior, evolutionary psychology, the existence of a gay gene, the role of parenting in determining gender identity, and Dawkins's "selfish gene" as the driver of natural selection. She dares social science to respect the agency and rationality of diverse people; shows that many cultures across the world and throughout history accommodate people we label today as lesbian, gay, and transgendered; and calls on the Christian religion to acknowledge the Bible's many passages endorsing diversity in gender and sexuality. Evolution's Rainbow concludes with bold recommendations for improving education in biology, psychology, and medicine; for democratizing genetic engineering and medical practice; and for building a public monument to affirm diversity as one of our nation's defining principles.

Guerre des sexes chez les animaux (La)

Evolution's Rainbow Diversity Gender And Sexuality In Nature And People [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Guerre des sexes chez les animaux (La) by Thierry Lodé Book Summary:

Même chez les animaux, les sexes ne sont pas d’accord. Entre la sexualité perdue des lézards et l’amour débridé des bonobos s’insinuent un combat des femelles, une bataille entre les mâles et même une lutte sans merci entre les mâles et les femelles. Comment expliquer tant d’affrontements ? Peut-on se contenter de voir dans ces conflits un paramètre parmi d’autres de la sélection ? Et si les embarras de Darwin ne faisaient que commencer ? Et s’il y avait désaccord radical ? L’histoire naturelle de la sexualité ne serait-elle pas l’histoire de toutes les tentatives de trêve, plus ou moins bancales, et de toutes les reprises, instinctives, d’hostilité entre deux sexes que tout sépare foncièrement et que tout conduit pourtant à se réconcilier ? La biodiversité amoureuse : un des principes fondamentaux de l’aventure du vivant ! Une description savoureuse des stratégies féroces et des bizarreries amoureuses telles qu’on les observe dans le monde animal. Biologiste, professeur d’écologie évolutive à l’université d’Angers, directeur de recherches sur la vie sociale des animaux à l’université de Rennes-I, Thierry Lodé est actuellement l’un des meilleurs spécialistes de la sexualité animale.

Le Gène généreux. Pour un darwinisme coopératif

Evolution's Rainbow Diversity Gender And Sexuality In Nature And People [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Le Gène généreux. Pour un darwinisme coopératif by Joan Roughgarden Book Summary:

Dans sa théorie de l’évolution par la « sélection naturelle », Darwin a ajouté un second processus, qu’il baptise « sélection sexuelle ». D’abord pensé pour expliquer les caractères exubérants des mâles, comme la queue du paon, ce concept a, par extension, servi à définir des rôles sexuels stéréotypés, le mâle devant conquérir et la femelle pouvant choisir. Appliquée à l’espèce humaine, cette théorie de la « sélection sexuelle » a pu servir d’explication (voire de justification) du viol, de l’infidélité ou de la pornographie. J. Roughgarden rejette ce modèle en s’appuyant sur les faits accumulés par la biologie. Il existe, par exemple, des espèces où c’est la femelle qui est combative, colorée, et le mâle qui s’occupe des soins aux petits. On compte en outre chez les animaux des comportements homosexuels, des individus transgenres, et des espèces où cohabitent plus de deux « genres ». Les explications en termes de sélection sexuelle s’inspirent également du paradigme du « gène égoïste » où dans la nature tout ne serait que conflit, égoïsme, profit. Contre cette image d’une guerre des sexes généralisée, Roughgarden propose une alternative qu’elle appelle « sélection sociale », mettant en avant le travail d’équipe et la coopération entre les partenaires.

When The Opposite Sex Isn't

Evolution's Rainbow Diversity Gender And Sexuality In Nature And People [Pdf/ePub] eBook

When The Opposite Sex Isn't by Sandra L. Samons Book Summary:

When there is uncertainty about the gender identity or social gender role of an individual, determining exactly who the opposite sex is can be a complicated question for both the transgender person and for those who seek to relate to her. Written in both an enlightened and a reader friendly style interspersed with vignettes, When the Opposite Sex Isn’t offers a combination of insights and common sense understanding of the diversity of the human condition together with concepts of gender and sexuality that expand the horizons of any mental health professional, regardless of the clinical focus of his or her work. Samons challenges concepts once taken for granted, thus providing stimulus for creative thinking which many lay readers will also find interesting and entertaining, whether or not they are (thus far) acquainted with a transgender person.

EVO Teachers Guide

Evolution's Rainbow Diversity Gender And Sexuality In Nature And People [Pdf/ePub] eBook

EVO Teachers Guide by Rodger W. Bybee,John Feldman Book Summary:

Draw on the wit and wisdom of brilliant scientists to inspire your students as you teach them about a challenging area of biology. This teachers guide, which accompanies the DVD EVO: Ten Questions Everyone Should Ask About Evolution is structured around 10 fundamental questions about biological evolution. The teachers guide explores the DVD's commentary from some of the world's most well-known biologists, who gathered on the Galàpagos Islands during a World Summit on Evolution and were interviewed about everything from what evolution is to how it happens to why anyone should care. While the video from the natural world provides students with vivid examples of the ideas and processes the biologists describe, the classroom experiences further support and develop students understanding of a scientifically-supported theory and its applications. The rigourously structured teachers guide helps you maximise the video with lesson-by-lesson learning outcomes; thorough background; and guidance on preparing for and then leading the lesson from initial student engagement through evaluation. Engaging, easy to use, and authoritative, EVO Teachers Guide and its DVD are must-have resources.

Everybody for Everybody: Truth, Oneness, Good, and Beauty for Everyone’S Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness

Evolution's Rainbow Diversity Gender And Sexuality In Nature And People [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Everybody for Everybody: Truth, Oneness, Good, and Beauty for Everyone’S Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness by Samuel A. Nigro Book Summary:

EVERYONE FOR EVERYONEthe book (volumes I & II) by Samuel A. Nigro, M.D. The Everybody for Everybody Book is the accumulation of what was learned over 70 plus years of life, over 45 years of marriage, over 40 years as a psychiatrist, 3 years in the U.S. Navy Submarine Service, and as a first generation American with five children and ten grandchildren. The planet and mankind are amazing. To limit ourselves to behaviors as if there is nothing more, is contradicted by an accurate comprehensive understanding of the planet and the universe. Basically, love is superior to all and the universe is the entropy necessary for the expression of love. Love itself requires there to be more. Nothing more is a cruel joke that life and love are meaningless. All logic and reason demand there be more, and we should act as if there is even much more love in anticipation. And if there isnt, then there ought to be! Regardless, the world would be better by believing in such and acting as such. The book provides some articles but most of it is the way to live a transcendental life: organized matter sanctified and given a soul by identity, truth, oneness, good and beauty for everyones life, liberty, and pursuit of happinesspartially the subtitle of the book. You get substance and the transcendental principles for living that save by actuality for a change. This is in contrast to the virtual reality culture of the unreliable manipulating self-discrediting noisy glitzy press&media imposed substanceless non-being which, by suggestibility, turns us into choiceless aliens instead of free persons for the planet. By the self-worshiping self-discrediting press&media, we are on the madman road-rage race to the bottom culture of pollution, disgust, death, and decline. Not by this book. Against vulgar suggestibility and glitz caused gullibility, this book gives real being by teaching six analogous ways of living the wisdom-filled eight categories of metaphors of love in the cone of space-time: As a human particle by elementary physicsevent, spectrum, field, quantum, singularity, dimension, uncertainty, and force. As a human being by community universalsdignity, unity, integrity, identity, spirituality, life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. As a C/catholic, Roman or otherwise, by the sacramentsBaptism, Penance, Holy Communion, Extreme Unction, Holy Orders, Matrimony, and Grace. As a Christian by the virtuesfaith, hope, charity, prudence, justice, courage, temperance, and holiness. As a patient by the universal variables of all therapyliving things are precious, selective ignoring, subdued spontaneity non-self excluded, affect assistance, detached warmth & gentleness, non-reactive listening, C2CC centered candidness, and peace & mercy. And as sanctified by the last words of the crucified Christ. Take your pick or combine them all. Except for the quantity, it is simple. Thousands of aphorisms and concepts about every imaginable topic are offered to teach ancient secrets from nature and natures God (to quote the Founding Fathers of America). Interspersed in the book are the worlds first SEX SATIRES...fiery hilarious...which will help all cope with the prurience flooding the world as entertainment, advertisement and games. SEX SATIRE, properly applied to those exploiting sex, will free you from sex craziness and help keep societys prurience from disrupting your transcendental life. Read it through once; then a few pages or a chapter daily; and problem-solve as needed by index and perusal. You will be better. The world will be better. You will learn to be a real human being for everyone. And you will have your soul back by embracing the universal Mass mantra: life-sacrifice-virtue-lovehumanity- peace-freedom-death.

Les Animaux et leurs langages

Evolution's Rainbow Diversity Gender And Sexuality In Nature And People [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Les Animaux et leurs langages by Eva MEIJER Book Summary:

Vous ne regarderez plus vos animaux de compagnie de la même façon ! Les dauphins et les perroquets s'appellent par des noms. Les éléphants en captivité utilisent des mots de notre langage pour interagir avec leurs geôliers. Les baleines à bosse peuvent chanter leur amour vingt heures durant. Certains passereaux imitent les cris d'autres animaux. Les calmars font apparaître sur leur peau des motifs grammaticalement structurés... À l'instar de ses confrères éthologues et biologistes, la jeune universitaire Eva Meijer s'est penchée sur la vaste question de la communication animale dans un ouvrage ludique et documenté qui fait émerger, chemin faisant, une question immémoriale : le langage, qu'est-ce que c'est ? Et si les animaux sont capables d'en développer de plusieurs types, qu'est-ce qui nous distingue d'eux ? Un véritable outil de réflexion qui nous force à abandonner certains automatismes de pensée et à considérer l'homme, cet animal, comme un maillon et non plus comme le centre du règne naturel.
