Regrettably (in my opinion), these new technologies have diminished intimate behaviour in many ways (although they have not changed intimate behaviour, so the books are still as relevant as they were 50 years ago). It's just that the Human Zoo has become even crazier.

Intimate Behaviour: A Zoologist's Classic Study of Human Intimacy Paperback. I am currently re-reading all the Desmond Morris books that I read in my youth, when they were first published. They are all very insightful, and put human behaviour in a biological context. Of course, culture is also important, but ultimately biology always trumps culture. The books are still very relevent, because (unlike culture) our human biology changes at a glacial pace. Having said that, these books were written before the age of the internet, smart-phones, etc. So inevitably they seem a little dated in parts.

One of the best chronicles of human intimacy-from the handshake through the twelve stages that people pass through on their way to the total sexual embrace. Результаты поиска по книге. Отзывы - Написать отзыв.

Intimate Behavior book. 2013 – 04 – Intimate Behaviour. A good look at human intimacy on a personal, sexual, familial, cultural, and societal level from the perspective of a Zoological animal behaviorist.

With a masterful and entertaining eye, Desmond Morris, bestselling author of The Naked Ape and The Human Zoo, analyzes the roots of human intimacy, from the handshake through the twelve stages that people pass through on their way to the total sexual embrace. Morris contends that the months just before and after birth are when the seeds of intimacy are planted and are critical to development. From the loving attention of the mother, the child learns and responds with intimate gestures of his or her own.

An old book dealing with a contemporary, old problem. Morris gives easy to understand observations that each reader can relate to one moves through this book

An old book dealing with a contemporary, old problem. Morris gives easy to understand observations that each reader can relate to one moves through this book. Even though the book is old the information is timeless. People have not changed in their basic nature even though some want to think we are enlightened and better than those generations before us. Anthrology view of Us. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 11 years ago. I like the writings of Desmond Morris because he takes the discipline of a scientist and applies it to looking at us.

Twenty-five years after it first caused a splash in the scientific and literary worlds, Intimate Behavior is still one of the best chronicles of human intimacy. With a masterful and entertaining eye, Desmond Morris, bestselling author of The Naked Ape and The Human Zoo, analyzes the roots of human intimacy, from the handshake through the twelve stages that people pass through on their way to the total sexual embrace.

For example, there was a time when restaurants were much noisier that they are today - couples and friends were not only dining but were engaged in animated conversation. Alas, these days they are much quieter; it is not uncommon to see a couple out for dinner hardly exchanging a word but both sitting with their smartphones in hand vociferously texting.

It is little wonder that we are so desperate to enjoy small initimacies . . . .

This is an interesting albeit dated book on the subject. The facts and references are a good 50 years old or more and though human nature has not changed significantly, the language and ways of interacting and communicating have altered a lot. The use of technology and it's effects evidently could not have been foreseen in the past.

Love this tome, physically a nice size for traveling, both informationally dense and linguistically manageable.

Very intelligent observer and scientist
Wat!?
Great addition to any anthropology fan's library

More insights from a very important author
I only got this because I needed to research some 1970's perspectives on social behavior and gender roles. It's a crock, not that there aren't some good observations, but the arrogant assertions based on them are off putting and rather laughable, except for the fact that people believed them and acted on them back then.
