The natural science of the human species an introduction to comparative behavioral research : the "Russian Manuscript" (1944-1948) by Konrad Lorenz ( )
12 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 1,700 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Edited from the author's posthumous works by Agnes von Cranach. Topics incl. natural science & idealistic philosophy, general attempts to define life, vitalism, mechanism, etc.\Here Am I Where Are You?: The Behavior of the Greylag Goose was thought to be Konrad Lorenz's last book. However, in 1991 the "Russian Manuscript" was discovered in an attic, and its subsequent publication in German has become a scientific sensation. Written under the most extreme conditions in Soviet prison camps, the "Russian Manuscript" was the first outline of a large-scale work on behavioral science. This translation contains a synopsis of all the ideas that made Lorenz famous as the founder of ethology, the study of comparative animal behavior. Written just after World War II, while the author was incarcerated in a Soviet prison camp, this so-called "Russian manuscript" was believed lost forever. Its rediscovery in 1991 and, now, its publication represent a major contribution to the history of science and the advancement of the behavioral sciences. This book contains some of the earliest formulations of the discipline that Lorenz called comparative behavioral research (i.e., ethology); its theories also portend the development of sociobiology and the new fields of behavioral and genetic psychology. He writes, "The route to an understanding of humans leads just as surely through an understanding of animals as the evolutionary pathway of humans had led through animal precursors." Lorenz also devotes almost equal attention to the "Philosophical Prolegomena" as to the "Biological Prologomena," arguing, in the process, for a synthesis between the sciences and the humanities as complementary expressions of human cognition. The text, edited by Lorenz's daughter, is full of literary excesses; although comprehensible to the lay reader, it is not particularly enjoyable to read. Still, such a book's value cannot be measured by its popularity alone. Important for any general science collection and indispensable for all academic or history of science collections.-Gregg Sapp, Univ. of Miami Lib

Man meets dog by Konrad Lorenz ( Book )
49 editions published between 1953 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 1,084 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A lifetime devoted to understanding animals lies behind this classic. Konrad Lorenz (regarded as the father of modern ethology, the study of animal behavior) opens his influential study with a speculation on the origins of the unique relationship shared by dogs and human beings. Throughout the book Lorenz introduces us to many of the dogs in his own life. Using these personal experiences as his guide, he examines the canine/human relationship from many perspectives, addressing such questions as: How do dogs regard children? What should you consider when you choose a puppy? How can you reward and discipline your dog effectively? How do you live with the inevitable death of a beloved animal? He also treats us to chapters on how cats play (by themselves and with dogs) and how cats and dogs differ in their relationships with their owners. Whether discussing dogs, cats, or human beings, he does so with great good humor, gentle wisdom, and much affection for all creatures.--Adapted from publisher description

Der Verhaltensforscher und Nobelpreisträger erzählt bewegende, amüsante und aufschlussreiche Episoden aus seinem Leben, in dem Tiere und insbesondere Hunde immer eine grosse Rolle gespielt haben. Er stellt sich sogar die Frage "Welcher Hund passt zu wem?". Seine Erinnerungen und Gedanken sind nach wie vor eine Quelle der Inspiration und Information für alle Tierfreunde und Hundeliebhaber. Und eine Bestätigung dafür, dass die Liebe zu einem Tier nicht abwegig, sondern ein "wundervoller Seelenzustand" ist, wie es eine Leserin bei amazon beschreibt. Konrad Lorenz(1903-1989) war ein österreichischer Verhaltensforscher. Lorenz erhielt 1973 den Nobelpreis für Physiologie oder Medizin, gemeinsam mit Karl von Frisch und Nikolaas Tinbergen. Seine bekanntesten Werke sind 'Das sogenannte Böse. Zur Naturgeschichte der Agression' (1963) und 'Über tierisches und menschliches Verhalten' (1965, 2 Bände)
