2.0 su 5 stelle Fills a useful niche if read with a critical eye. 16 aprile 2017
Di circa24 - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Sex, Time and Power fills a useful niche if read with a critical eye. The author makes some wonderful points, focusing on the evolution of female behaviors, an approach quite different from the typical gender neutral approach or male-centered approach. However, I found the book to do much hand waving. I found there to be frequent confusion between correlation and causation, and between these ideas and variables lurking in the background. Ideas that our meat diet may result from a woman's need for iron due to heavy menstruation is one example of an idea that I though lacked a credible bases as presented in the book. He uses an "Adam and Eve" parable that I found questionable both scientifically and theologically. I would recommend this book as an excellent exercise for critical thinking and evaluation of a book. Some intersting ideas, but it needs to be read carefully and with a critical eye.

-- and Gyno sapiens instead of Homo Sapiens? Really? Can't we even see a species name as gender neutral?
5.0 su 5 stelle A daring theory and a good mix of fact and speculation. Take it with a grain of salt and an open mind and you'll be enriched 25 marzo 2017
Di Iulia Enachescu - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
This is a great book to satisfy One's curiosity about the possible biological determinations that shape the relationship between men and women. Dr. Shlain approaches the subject in a casual but well informed manner, making this book a pleasant read for both those that are academically versed and those of us that are not.
While there are a lot of facts presented, the author does not claim to present an absolute scientific truth, but rather an informed guess. He pieces together facts, like a puzzle, in order to build a coherent theory of what might have happened. I felt that he invites the reader to entertain his ideas, measure them and dare to disagree or rearrange them into possible new constellations. It seems like, more then anything, his intention was to start a dialogue, a conversation on the subject of male/female dynamics and this book is what he brings into the conversation.
I don't think his ideas were meant to be entirely factual, I think this is a brave theory that combines facts with playful speculations and opens the way for more exploration into the subject while daring others to complete, complement or even correct his perspective.
Although dense, this is is an easy and enjoyable read. I learned new things and also got a lot of food for thought as this book provided me with some possible answers(as incomplete as scientific scrutiny might find them) that entertained a question that I have asked myself for a long time.
I would recommend it to anyone who's been interested in the subject or enjoys a good, creative theory.
5.0 su 5 stelle This Explains Everything. 28 agosto 2015
Di catherine - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Schlain approaches the subject of human sexual reproductive systems from his early med school curiosity of why women have a standard 15% less iron count than men. He explores multiple theories when considering why we circumcize men, why women need to couple, why we might have evolved the G-spot orgasm, the value and function of the postmenopausal woman/ grandmother in society, etc. and then explains which theory makes most sense to him- and frames it with the logic that connects the adaptation to the survival of women/ the species. I really appreciate the fluidity of Schlain's writing. It's refreshing to see a narrative approach vs the dense academic writing one usually sees when scientific theory and data is presented. I disagree that it is a slow read. What may be slow is that he provides concrete examples and narrative excerpts of how this idea might play out. Schlain is an excellent teacher. I could not put this book down. In fact, I just ordered the book again, because I left it with a friend out of state by accident (I am 2/3 through the book), and I can't bear waiting any longer for it to get sent back to me.
5.0 su 5 stelle An encouraging word 2 agosto 2013
Di Joyce - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Shlain brings his experience as a surgeon and his life-long interest in evolutionary theory to this question: Why is global society so shot through with misogyny and patriarchy? In his earlier book, The Alphabet Versus the Goddess, he hypothesized that the invention of writing reconfigured the brain so as to reinforce the masculine animus at the expense of the feminine anima. In this book, he is looking at even deeper evolutionary currents that might feed these patterns in our species. Even though you might not agree with Shlain's hypotheses, he stimulates you to create your own. I suggest beginning at the end of this book. Read the epilogue which tells how he happened to write the book, then read his summary Chapter 23. Go on to his final chapter (24) in which he describes what it would be like for women in particular and for men in particular to have the sexual experience of other mammals of their sex. Then he reminds us of the unique gift of human familial relationships and asks the reader if that overrides the vexatious problems nature has saddled us with. These three sections are a treat and let you know where he is going so that you can leisurely read from the beginning his step-by-step detailed path to his conclusion. One encouraging word: Shlain notes that evolutionary change takes place in sudden spurts. Things seem not to be changing at all for hundreds (thousands) of years, then comes punctuated change. He points to signs that such a change in male/female relations is coming soon.

As a Creationist, I question Dr. Shlain's repeated insistence that all the incredibly intricate design features of the human body could not possibly have been an intentional design. Having said that, the explanations of how and why human (and especially female) sexuality is interwoven with other functions of humanity is just fascinating and well worth the read, no matter what your thoughts on the origin of the species.
