"In this controversial, thought provoking, and brilliant book, renegade thinkers Christopher Ryan and Cacilda Jethá debunk almost everything we 'know' about sex, weaving together convergent, frequently overlooked evidence from anthropology, archaeology, primatology, anatomy, and psychosexuality to show how far from human nature monogamy really is. In Sex at Dawn, the authors expose the ancient roots of human sexuality while pointing toward a more optimistic future illuminated by our innate capacities for love, cooperation, and generosity."--Back of book
Seks ob zori : predzgodovinski izvori moderne spolnosti by Christopher Ryan( Book )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Desde los tiempos de Darwin, nos han contando que nuestra especie tiende naturalmente a la monogamia sexual. Tanto la ortodoxia científica como las instituciones religiosas y culturales mantienen que hombres y mujeres hemos evolucionado en familias en las que los unos intercambiaban sus posesiones y su protección por la fertilidad y fidelidad de las otras. Pero este discurso se desmorona. Cada día se casan menos parejas, y los índices de divorcio aumentan sin cesar, mientras el adulterio y la disminución del deseo hacen naufragar 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 querebaten casi todo lo que sabemos del sexo, ofrecen una atrevida explicación alternativa.La tesis central de Ryan y Jethá es que los seres humanos evolucionamos en su día en grupos igualitaristas que compartían la comida, el cuidado de los niños y, a menudo, las parejas sexuales. Entretejiendo indicios convergentes--obviados habitualmente--que nos ofrecen la antropología, la arqueología, la primatología, la anatomía y la psicología sexual, los autores ponen de manifiesto lo lejos que está la monogamia de formar parte de la naturaleza humana.En 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 qué vivimos y amamos como lo hacemos

Sex - die wahre Geschichte by Christopher Ryan( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in German and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Monogamie ist von der Natur nicht vorgesehen. Mit dieser wissenschaftlich fundierten Erkenntnis stellen die Autoren unser Verständnis menschlicher Evolution und den angeblichen Kern unserer westlichen Gesellschaften infrage: die monogame Paarbeziehung. Dieses Buch stellt so ziemlich alles infrage, was wir bislang über Partnerschaft, Ehe und Gesellschaft geglaubt haben. Die beiden Autoren untersuchen die prähistorischen Wurzeln der menschlichen Sexualität und hinterfragen, welches Sexual- und Paarungsverhalten das natürliche ist. Die Veranlagung zur Monogamie, die Darwin und nach ihm viele Evolutionsbiologen konstatierten, ist eine krasse Fehlinterpretation. Die Autoren greifen die Wurzeln unseres Verständnisses von Ehe, Partnerschaft und Gesellschaft an und argumentieren damit gegen eine ganze Zunft, die Monogamie als genetische anthropologische Konstante betrachtet
