Book Description Oxford At The Claredon Press, London, 1951. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 16mo - over 5¾ - 6¾" tall. Hardcover blue with heavily sunned and faded spine, has scuffscuff and bumping to the hardcover. Excellent book. The book was published in 1951 and the references to computers are extremely dated, but his analysis of the brain, thinking, scientific discovery, learning, evolution, etc. are very enlightening. Extra postage needed if overseas. Young tries to look at human beings from the perspective of a biologist. He tries to describe all aspects of humans including religion from a biologists perspective. He looks at the brain as an organ and begins by describing the brain and the neurons that make up the brain. He explains how these neurons and their behavior can explain most of the behavior of humans. Reminiscent of "Lost Worlds", he talks about the evolution of humans and how we are more a product of our social environment than our DNA. (This is a very old thread for me and something I would like to develop more in the future.) He explains how atoms flow through the human body and explains that we are a "pattern" and have nothing solid that persists over time. We are like a whirlpool. "Biology like physics, has ceased to be material," he says. In this sense, evolution of humans is about learning and learning is about the brain. Bookseller Inventory # 000331
