About this title


This first volume of the collected papers of Lorenz presents an authoritative review of the founding period of one of the newest sciences. Written during the years 1931-42, these six papers provide a rich source of information on the development of his ethological approach. Lorenz defines a range of behavioral acts: innate, instinctive, conditioned, and insight controlled. He then analyzes their manner of interrelation in the overall behavior of a species of animal. Whatever one's position on the theoretical concepts developed here, the discussion of the Spencer/Lloyd Morgan theory, McDougall's theory of instinct, the reflex theory of the instinctive behavior pattern, imprinting, or Lorenz's own observational techniques and principles - these papers provide an exciting and stimulating array of ideas and will interest the nonspecialist and the student as well as the biologist, sociologist, anthropologist, and ethologist.
