    KINDLE [Why We Cooperate] This book has a lofty goal explaining how human altruism and cooperativeness developed given that our closest relatives in the animal kingdom aren't altruistic or cooperative but only manages to barely skim the surface of the issue This book is actually a collection of lectures that Tomasello gave with some short commentary from other scholars at the end The only problem is there isn't much new ground covered

Michael Tomasello ☆ 3 free download review ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ Michael Tomasello characters Why We Cooperate Children and great apes help identify the underlying psychological processes that very likely supported humans' earliest forms of complex collaboration and ultimately our uniue forms of cultural organization from the evolution of tolerance and trust to the creation of such group level structures as cultural norms and institutions Scholars Carol Dweck Joan Silk Brian Skyrms and Elizabeth Spelke respond to Tomasello's findings and explore the implication.

Tomasello has written a short sweet technical introduction to his theory of cooperation which is a pretty hot topic in cognitive circles these days The book was adapted from a series of lectures Stanford s 2008 Tanner Lectures so it isn t as heavily footnoted or uite as academic in tone as an academic journal article but it doesn t spend uite as much time on background and basics as a typical pop cog book Still it does cover a lot of territory in its short length only 172 pages with pretty big marginsTomasello explores cooperation with several different comparisons He is most famous for comparing infants and toddlers to young chimpanzees but that is just one aspect he also explores cross cultural differences for example Children and chimps however are a very intriguing place to start which is why the New York Times leaned heavily on his work in the December 2009 article We May Be Born With an Urge to Help well worth readingHe focuses on two basic phenomena p xvii1 Altruism one individual sacrificing in some way for another and2 Collaboration multiple individuals working together for mutual benefit
