Descrizione prodotto


She is more scientific than Genesis, more up to date than Darwin, more fun than Ardrey, and she writes better than Desmond Morris. --Sunday Telegraph

Sir David Attenborough takes to the radio to mull over a once ridiculed idea about human evolution . . . Attenborough shows how the theory has gained traction. --The Times

It was one of the most outrageous, improbable evolutionary ideas ever proposed... now the idea... is becoming respectable. --Observer


Why do humans differ from other primates? What do those differences tell us about human evolution? Elaine Morgan gives a revolutionary hypothesis that explains our anatomic anomalies--why we walk on two legs, why we are covered in fat, why we can control our rate of breathing? The answers point to one conclusion: millions of years ago our ancestors were trapped in a semi-aquatic environment. In presenting her case Elaine Morgan forces scientists to question accepted theories of human evolution.

The book is easy to read and fascinating in its analysis.
I didn't follow up on this hypotesis before and I was totally fascinating by the evidence.

4.0 su 5 stelle This is how Science REALLY happens 25 dicembre 2011
Di D. J. Foley - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
The Aquatic Ape Theory (or Aquatic Ape Hypothesis) has been "in the air" for decades now. Some ignore it, some ridicule it, some are convinced that it's "the TRUTH" and some have never heard of it.

That's what happens in fields that jelously guard their academic perogatives, (i.e. ALL of Them, these days) It's all too easy to forget that the history of Science has quite a few "outsiders" "intruding" into areas "about which they know nothing" to great effect and advancing the field. This is called "Fresh Perspective."

The differences between Humans and the other Great Apes (And YES, we ARE Apes, deal with it. We are also Mammals,Vertebrates, Animals, and LIVING THINGS!) are morphologically, and culturally significant. They need to be addressed. Elaine Morgan has been trying to do this for years. Fighting a lonely battle against all the ossification of a field that is less than 200 years old.

I find it rather amazing how quickly a "Priesthood" has developed, complete with "Unchallengable" tennants for which there is absolutely NO PROOF, only conjecture.

This book is a summary of the AAT's answers to the problems of Humanity's "unique" distinctions from our cousins. The good, the bad, and the incomplete. This is a "work in progress" and there's a LOT of work to be done. Sadly, no University is going to sponsor it since it would gore too many "sacred cows" and so it will be left to "outsiders" until the evidence is SO overwhelmingly obvious that the Academic Elites will have to resort to the pathetic "Well, that's what WE'VE said all along!"

Di Jay - Pubblicato su

This book presents an opinion which diverges slightly from opinions held by others. The author presents her evidence in a fair, and readable, manner. She may be right, or she may be wrong, but detractors are really just upset because she is not worshipping at the feet of some allegedly higher authority quite as intently as they would wish her to do. It is interesting to see what various interested parties are pondering, and arguing about. Disputes between believers, and unbelievers, are nothing new. Once upon a time, experts told us that rocks can not fall from the sky, because there are no rocks in the sky. Now, Meteorolgy is a complete field of study in itself. Experts vary, and argue, and fields of study fluctuate. That is as true in Anthropology, etc, as in anything else. Morgan's Unforgivable Sin-as far as her detractors are concerned-is that she dares to challenge the "humans descended directly from savannah dwelling apes" theory, and posits the notion that "humans descended directly from swamp dwelling apes". She backs her theory up at least as well as the savannah ape pundits back theirs up. Perhaps humans actually descended directly from a savannah ape-swamp ape crossbreeding. Wouldn't that upset all the alleged 'experts'? Whether you have a hat in the ring-working in an organization researching the issue, or applying for grants to study it, or such-or whether you are just curious about what the Evolutionists are pushing this week, you may find this a useful read. If you are a Savannah Ape Zealot, do not read this book, as doing so will probably stroke you out.

4.0 su 5 stelle Radical theory to be accepted 4 maggio 2014
Di D. Diderot - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
The infamous author has been condemned for suggestion, the hairless, sweaty, ape with no clothing, like creature calling themselves human, also is fearful at heights. The author deals with superficial aspects of her aquatic ape conjecture and book is good for identifying countless water specific cognitive skills with water hydro-dynamic design features. Leaving aside the initial theory, recent convergent scientific data suggests humanity emerged from shallow swamps, and comprised oh 75 per cent water, with 80 percent next to oceans, seas, massive lakes, and river, humanity could have been amphibious erect, forward walking, thump to four finger dexterity, recessed sex organs, body fat (only such primate), small water tight noise, and birth tho death bed comfort in water, suggest we climbed from water, not trees

I read Elaine Morgan's book 'The Descent of Woman' in the late 1970s, shortly after it's publication in 1976. I was drawn to her very different theory of human origins at the time and have thought about it from time to time since then. Recently I have again been drawn to the issues of our human origins and have returned to her writings for additional understanding of the more recent discoveries and hypotheses. This book contains even more information about the probability that we developed into very different primates through an aquatic phase and adaptation to spending a lot of time in the water. We were also isolated for a critical period of time from our primate cousins who continued their development in a mosaic environment of forest and grassland and who lack the adaptations to an aquatic ecosystem. Very thought provoking and highly recommended.

If I were to describe this particular book in one word, it would be fascinating. Before watching a documentary once called: "Mermaids" The Body Found" I can honestly say I'd never even heard of The Aquatic Ape Theory. However, both the documentary and this book have turned my ideas about human evolution upside down! The scientific analysis can make reading this book seem a little heavy. However if you're looking for a book on evolution to challenge the way you see evolution this book may be it.
