The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals Reviews
This is a horrible edition of this classic text. Layout is poor and the all important figures are missing from this edition
The edition of this book is really bad. It doesn't even has numbered pages. It looks like a school work.
Ever since I received Paul EkmanÕs new edition of DarwinÕs classic work, the book has been my constant companion. I carry it with me from room to room, picking it up to read whenever I have a few minutes.You can open to just about any page and discover yet another gem. Whether you find a bit to read by chance, or whether you like to be guided by the fascinating table of contents and index, or whether you prefer to begin at the beginning, Darwin is always interesting and accessible. In view of our troubled world, I find it helpful to remember that empathy is an essential part of human and animal nature. It seems the study of emotion must lead us toward a deeper understanding of these universal, powerful forces that energize and transform our lives.ÒExpressionÓ is really an old friend. As a young dance therapist in the 1960s, I was impressed first by DarwinÕs ability to describe the dynamic process of expressive movement. Obviously it is the emotions that motivate and shape the way we move. I learned then that his observations were gathered over a period of 30 years. His subjects included not only all kinds of animals, but also human infants, children and adults from every walk of life and from many different cultures. He approached the study of emotional expression from the perspective of art, literature and inner experience, as well as from muscles and the nervous system. Although it was first published over 125 years ago (1872) DarwinÕs work continues to inspire and inform contemporary research in many fields.The new edition is simply outstanding. Paul EkmanÕs editing is clearly a Òlabor of love,Ó and at the same time a thorough, original scholarly contribution. I particularly like the way he places DarwinÕs work in a cultural and social/political context. EkmanÕs commentary offers rich resources as he quietly updates, re-frames or differs, yet more than anything, confirms and extends DarwinÕs observations. It is as if Ekman and Darwin were engaged in a kind of dialogue, each learning from the other. Thereader is a privileged witness.Joan Chodorow
I also received a copy of the text only copy of this book. I am extremely disappointed. This book is meant to be filled with illustrations including Darwin's studies in asylum's taking pictures of the insane and other drawings of animals, etc. That I received this cheap text only copy clearly printed by some knock-off printer makes me really angry. This book is useless without the pictures and diagrams. Period.
This book is atrocious. I expected to get a copy of one of Darwin's masterpieces, but instead I got an abomination that appears to be printed in someone's garage. That there isn't even a publisher's name on the front pages should be considered a warning to all those considering purchasing this mess! I understand that this book is already in public domain, but seriously... the publisher did not even try.There are no diagrams or photographs in this book. Not one! These diagrams and photos are what made Darwin's ideas more tangible. Without them, one is left to wonder what exactly inspired Darwin to develop these ideas.The warning is clear: Stay away from this disaster. If you need a copy of "The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals" look for one that includes the photographs.
While other works by Darwin often get the most notice, this book is a key work by a scientist clearly working through the consequences of his at-the-time new theory of evolution via natural selection. The book itself explores how Human emotions, expressed outwardly, look the same (or, in some cases not) as their close primate relations. Firstly, the concept that animals /had/ emotions to express might have been considered outrageous by some, and secondly how the book was lavishly illustrated was novel for the time as well.To understand how Darwin was thinking about Human origins, it's insufficient to just purchase and read the Descent of Man- this book is a must.Secondly, this edition of the book has proven to be a very good one for me- the illustrations are clear and I've enjoyed the typeset. While it's possible to find a PDF of the book online, I find having this useful for showing to students.
I purchased this book because I love to study about people and how they work. Excellent book.
This book is a very nice readding info about the researches of Darwin. In parallel with the discoveries made on nature, he always make a relationship with home enviroment animals, such as dogs, cats and other pets.On Kindle version, theres some problems in diagramming, so sometimes you need to pay atention to identify that is text from notes and observations.
