Tomasello's much acclaimed works address the perennial question of what makes human thinking unique, by using evidences drawn, mostly, from experimental devices of his making at the Max Planck Institute; settings meant to compare child's (toddlers and preschoolers) and apes' skills at spatial, instrumental and social cognition. The thesis he builds and sustains is, at core, Piagetian : our most cherished feats (notably language and cumulative culture) are contingent products of our hypersocial t ...more

Ahlakın esasen biyolojik evrime dayandığını, herhangi bir duygudaşlıktan çok rasyonel nedenlerle olduğunu savunan bir kuram üzerineydi. Maymunlarla ilgili kısımda belgesel izliyor gibiydim.

For the vast majority of recorded human history, we humans have believed that morality comes from somewhere outside of us; from “above,” from the ether, from some kind of benevolent creator, etc. Even as we have learned more and more about how humans evolved from apes who evolved from “lower” animals who evolved from “lower” lifeforms who evolved from, essentially, “ooze” we have still maintained that human morality comes from outside of human beings. The idea is that morality has been bestowed ...more
There's an idea in psychology that you learn things better if they're presented in a less approachable way, because you have to activate more critical thinking skills to parse them in the first place. If that's true, then this book is great. It's kind of astonishing how much about morality we take for granted, especially as atheists, and this book at least starts to fill in some of those gaps with concrete and realistic hypotheses. So many questions in issues I've been thinking about a lot latel ...more

Through experimental evidence in primatology, anthropology, child development and psychology, Tomasello describes how cognitive and psychological sophistication engenders interdependence-based sympathy. Mutualistic collaboration and self-projective perspectival cogitation are uniquely human and further consolidate our sympathetic concern, while shared intentionality gestates the sense of fairness and the mechanics of justice. These proximate motivations, innate and genuine, are the foundations o ...more
The book is very dense and makes a lot of claims that are not well supported. I Tried to read it several times but failed. The idea of morality as a form of cooperation was quite interesting though. The book could have been written better, it’s too dry.

Bel libro, molto chiaro nelle spiegazioni genealogiche, forse nell'ultimo capitolo rischia di essere leggermente ripetitivo
Per Kraulis
A magisterial synthesis of empirical results and philosophical arguments concerning anthropology, sociology, human psychology and evolutionary history. How can human morality be the product of the seemingly amoral process of evolution? The discussion is grounded in empirical results concerning the common and divergent behaviors of human children and chimpanzees (our nearest evolutionary relative). The focus in this book is on how cooperation, joint intentionality and fairness based on other-self ...more
