That being said, some of the best parts of this book are the drawings related to studies conducted on patients with a s This was an interesting book to read after all of the recent cal and groundbreaking discoveries of the human brain. It was an example of him taking a too stuck up harsh attitude in order to make us love space age society by a rather insulting message of “how lucky you are, yah boo think of your ancestors”. Thus, in Dragons, he mentions whaling in a quick couple of words without dwelling on it.
Reading on beyond there he has your acceptance that you are reading the thoughts of a rigidly doctrinaire brain materialist who believed mind exists only as a function of matter, you are not reading any case or argument to help you decide whether ssagan agree with that.
There drabones better books that do edeen job of this one, but for the time I’m sure it was pretty fantastic. Archaeology has found many traces of leaves or mosses being used.
There is a popular game, sometimes called Pong, which simulates on a television screen a perfectly elastic ball bouncing between two surfaces. The core of the book is his ideas on evolutionary memory, those experiences of proto-humans which to assure species survival were recorded in DNA.
Despite the success of animal cloning by somatic cell nuclear transfer SCNT in many species, the method is limited by its low efficiency.
Overall fun, but as it is frommuch of the scientific research rehashes things I encountered in school, and has progressed since then. Clearly, Sagan smokes weed. His description of the experiment of teaching deaf sign language dragines chimpanzees also seems quite selectively pulled to fit into his own point of view.

Lps instance, at the low level of the R-complex, the “reptilian brain” supports “dinosaur-ancient” functions like aggression, territoriality, and establishing social hierarchy. Overall a solid 3. It raises interesting points on the evolution of humans as a species. Sagan writes about the triune brain model and how the brain has evolved into 3 layers; the R-Complex which is where our reptilian brain functions stem from aggression and territorial behavior and is the oldest part of the brain, the Limbic System social emotions and the Neocortex sight, sound, knowledge lod.

Wondering if there’s a more recent edition with up-to-date tour of human understanding of our ancestors. As a result of Pong, the player can gain a deep intuitive understanding of the simplest Newtonian physics…” Although his book won the Pulitzer Prize for General Nonfiction inDragons of Eden can no longer be recommended to the general reader.
Parts I found incredibly interesting and thought provoking and parts were so, so dull. It begs the question; If other mammals on this planet exhibit a form of intelligence, why don’t we take better care of them and instead lock them up in zoos?
I don’t know enough about neuroscience or anatomy to say if the science in this still holds up Edl and try again.
Hard read, but fascinating especially considering how long ago it was written. Want to Read saving…. Firstly, this book was written in the 70’s so its possible that some of the sagann contained here is out of date.
For twelve years he was the editor-in-chief of Icarus, the leading professional journal devoted to planetary research.
