review Die acht Todsünden der zivilisierten Menschheit Õ eBook or Kindle ePUB O nella sua evoluzione e che minacciano oggi di ucciderla La sovrappopolazione la devastazione della terra l’indottrinamento coatto le armi nucleari l’ostilità e l’indifferenza che si annidano nel corpo della società sono tutti anelli di una stessa catena fatale prodotta da un atteggiamento incurante e rapace verso la vita Distesamente e acutamente con l’occhio lucido dello scienziato e insie. 1973 Our incredible collective stupidityHands down the Romanian translation of this book was the worst I ever came across considering I wasn t in any pedantic disposition Romanian readers do yourself a favor and get the english version I almost attributed the atrocious writing style to the author big mistake on my part that became obvious once I switched to the EN edition Who knows maybe the translator is a living reincarnation of a once successful butcherThe premise of the book has fascinated us from the moment we understood our power as a species means to achieve proper self destructionI said to myself this would be probably outdated by now but I was struck to find an ethologist that was able to unravel some deeply articulate and sobering suppositions that remain sensible even in 2019 With all these observations heavily grounded in the author s field of expertise it s rather refreshing to allow yourself to channel in the standpoind of a zoologist perhaps a pair of eyes well fit for this scary endeavorKonrad Lorenz has a far incisive stance than that of the beloved biologist EOWilson who tackled a very similar topic giving birth to the HIPPO acronym HHabitat Loss IInvasive Species PPollution PHuman Population and OOverharvesting Granted you ll have to put aside our accomplishments for a moment or two1 OverpopulationWhile the malthusian prophecies are yet to be fleshed out in the meantime there is another important aspect the sheer rise in the number of human interaction which should easily astound anyone Cloistered in small places unable to deal with the superabundance of contact we need to set and emotional barriers Keen observation We can t be together and we don t know how to be alone with ourselves2 Environmental devastationIt seems the thinker doers are invested in doing rather than thinking We disturb the natural balance with apparent impunity Without nature there s only us And then what Spiritual blindness atrophy of senses and worse nothing to admire but ourselvesIf there s any collective sin we may call capital this is it3 Man s race against himselfWe re locked in the frenzy of buying stuff yet our fears prevail and our health suffers KL warns that the commercial race has embedded within itself multiple cycles of positive feedback I feel like this part might be important but solvable It will reflect and in the economic fluctuations or decline correlated with scarcity of some resources due to overpopulation I think we ll find some solution to this at one point or another in order to save our skin4 Entropy of feelingThis one was the hardest to swallow Lorenz uses the pleasure displeasure pair to illustrate how modern man is and sensible to the smallest inkling of displeasure and seeks to avoid it at all costs and in return look mostly for instant gratification infantile behavior With no pain no gain so the level of pleasure we can achieve with our passive demeanor decreases People leave their dogs behind when they move as if they were part of the decor And we get less attached to traditions and old thing as well eg an old car and reject with downright hatred the culture of our parents We the neophiles are loosing our capacity to feel strongly about things 5 Genetic decayWe are one species that will break away from having to keep one social norm or another in place masters of our own destiny Infantile types turn into victimized parasites Aside from the strong right wing inclinations and revulsion to the pseudo democracy it is very interesting to read about an innate sense of justice and legal structure that arose similarly and independently in different corners of the earth 6 The break with traditionAgain Lorenz thinks in terms of system euilibrium In this case the system is formed of mechanisms of psychological neophilia and late obedience and has the function to preserve essential structures and eliminate whatever hinders progress The problem is if positive feedback appears7 Indoctrination NOT anything can be made out of any man I agree that by stating so the individuality of man is reduced to nothing and that this is a deeply concerning worldview Failing to acknowledge the worthy does no good to those on a different side of the ability spectrum This attitude is nothing or less than an incubator for misanthropic inclinations and justly so We are reminded of the process of hypothesis formation and verification falsifiability and to pay attention to obedience to authorityThe uestionable supremacy of science above anything else and the now lacking appeal of subjective experience should be considered in this age of mass media and commercial indoctrination8 Nuclear weaponsThe author assumes the incredible collective stupidity of mankind will make it hard to pave the way for disarmament but that nuclear war will be easily averted than the rest of the capital sinsThe author s scholarly disdain for mankind s shortcomings still holds ground yet I can t help noticing that it is somewhat hard to reconcile with his own life experiences and political affiliations But man is than the sum of his experiences and its worthwhile spending an hour of two in the company of a brilliant ethologist Airliners in Flight A Gallery of Air To Air Photography

review Die acht Todsünden der zivilisierten Menschheit Õ eBook or Kindle ePUB Me con appassionata partecipazione Lorenz analizza le cause e i meccanismi di uesti e altri peccati la cui gravità è spesso tanto maggiore in uanto non vengono riconosciuti come tali – e le sue pagine daranno una prova convincente di uale aiuto prezioso possano offrire antiche e nuove scienze come la biologia e l’etologia nel tentativo di comprendere processi che coinvolgono oggi la vita di tutti. This book is amazing and be honest truly frightening It was written in the 70s and every single world of the author is true now in this brave new world of the 21st century He did not know the answers now and we do not know them yet but this book is one from many that and people should read and importantly think about the ideas and theories in it And the main point is on the thinking part

review Die acht Todsünden der zivilisierten Menschheit Õ eBook or Kindle ePUB In uesto limpido libretto del 1973 che ha già avuto un successo strepitoso in Germania e lo sta avendo ora in tutto il mondo Konrad Lorenz premio Nobel per la medicina affronta nella prospettiva della biologia e dell’etologia alcuni problemi capitali che si pongono al mondo di oggi Tali problemi secondo Lorenz corrispondono ad altrettanti «peccati capitali» che la civiltà occidentale ha accumulat. Lorenz frames his eight deadly sins argument in the following way Those structures and functions that are adaptive are normal Behaviors functions performed by structures that either underperform or overperform are disorders that he characterizes as pathological His approach as an ethologist is to ask first what is the normal function of a system and if disturbed whether it has been caused by an over or underfunction as part of a system These deviations from the adaptive norm are sins Thus normal sexual reproductive behavior becomes abnormal when it increases relatively unchecked Overpopulation eats up space crowds individuals and elicits aggression More people results in environmental degradation Finding new ways to satisfy needs via technological advance consumes us and robs us of the genuinely human activity of reflection Life becomes too easy we move from necessity to overindulgence and lose the ability to experience a joy that is only attainable through surmounting serious obstacles Boredom is the result Norms of social behavior based on an innate sense of justice fall by the wayside This tendency to overindulge this chasing the transitory pleasures of indulgence creates an infantilism that he calls for some reason genetic decay Younger generations no longer have respect for the wisdom of the elders Youngsters want to self indulge the elders want them to hold back Technological advances that facilitate communication is used now to indoctrinate and manipulate the masses The last sin takes the normal need to advance and defend one s interests but now gives need nuclear weapons to advance one s capacity either to get or to defendLorenz blames these sins in large part on the attitude that denies biology s role and on an attachment that says instead that we are environmentally determined 1 Man has not fewer but genuinely instinctive impulses than any other animal he states 2 This is about biological tendencies not determinism These emotional impulses are neither good nor bad per se Rather it is when they are either too much or too little vis vis a situation that determines whether they are adaptive or abnormal 3 By being aware of these impulses we are Lorenz believes able to exert oversight of their expression Style wise the book was uneven It was lay friendly for the most part but technically obscure in other parts Here and there particularly in his discussion of the generational divide Lorenz comes across as a fuddy duddy and indoctrination has always been a problem though the scale is different now Substantively I like his normal abnormal characterization of impulses but I think he underestimates the force of environmental pressures and I wonder if he does not misframe his argument as a result If we pursue our natural impulses to reproduce then we are per Malthus creating a population of need seeking beings which then functioning now as an emergent phenomenon forces everyone to compete in increasingly aggressive ways Our biology still plays out but now it s activated by external situations as opposed to being driven solely from the inside And this all proceeds in a logical seuence that has a doom uality about it making Lorenz s hope for addressing these sins with normalized behavior futile1 The process of dehumanization discussed in Chapters 2 8 give support to the pseudodemocratic doctrine which maintains that the social and moral behavior of man is in no way determined by the phylogenetically evolved organization of his nervous system and of his sense organs but rather that this behavior is determined solely by the conditioning to which in the course of his ontogenesis he is exposed by his particular cultural environment 2 Words like hate love friendship anger loyalty affection mistrust trust and so on all signify states corresponding with the propensity to uite specific behavior patterns in a way no different from the terms applied in scientific behavior research such as aggressivity ranking order drive territoriality and termini connected with mood 3 Too much love spoils countless promising children too much loyalty raised to an absolute has had appalling conseuences
