Item description for The Intelligent Genome by H. Loserl Adolf Heschl...

Do our genes determine our behavior? Do education and environment have any influence at all? Do humans occupy a unique position in evolution? To clarify these provoking questions, the author takes the reader on an ambitious and entertaining journey through a variety of scientific disciplines. In doing so, he creates an image of human evolution that says that our entire individual knowledge is determined - to the smallest detail - by phylogeny. " ... before shocked humanists discard such radical theses as mere nonsense, they should not completely close their minds to the explanations of a biologist who says that we still know very little about the genetic determination of human behavior and that the invariance of many forms of behavior present in all cultures nourish the suspicion that the determining role of genes is probably far more comprehensive than we have ever dreamed."
Wolfgang Wieser, translated from his review in "Merkur" (Sept./Oct. 1999)

Reviews - What do customers think about The Intelligent Genome?

For fans of Richard Dawkins...  Jun 2, 2004
I have just begun to read this book and am delighted to find it extends the logical implications I found so right in Richard Dawkins' work.

If you're interested in a little extraordinary illumination about the phenomenon of the genome in the cosmos, then please have a look at what's presented here.

I will update this review upon further investigation, but I didn't want to leave this page without some well-deserved positive feedback.

Not only does this book have extraordinary philosophical implications, but it is complementary with the rich store of biological information available through the Konrad Lorenz Institute website.
