Badcock, Christopher
This book is an account of the nature and significance of human sociobiology. Assuming no prior knowledge, it explains the basic concepts of the subject in simple, accessible language, and illustrates them by numerous examples from the everyday experience of past and present times. Christopher Badcock argues that, properly understood, modern Darwinian insights into reproductive success, natural selection and social behaviour are wholly consistent with the idea and existence of free will, self-consciousness and sacrifice, and with individual and group morality. He reveals the surprising extent to which evolutionary theory can explain aspects not only of male-female relations and of the interaction between parents and children, but characteristically female behaviour in relation to fertility, abortion, concealed ovulation and menstrual synchronation. He also presents a challenging new theory of male homosexuality in the context of the wider question of masculinity and sexual conflict. Sociobiology is a controversial field and its practitioners have been accused of reducing human beings to packages of programmed genes. Christopher Badcocok shows by contrast, that it has much to offer students of human behaviour at every stage of cultural and individual development. 303pp. N.B. Some HIGHLIGHTING and annotation throughout. Reading crease to spine. Slant to book.

Dole, George F.
Is there really a hell? Should we be good simply to avoid punishment in the life hereafter? Just asking these questions theoretically doesn't get us far, George F Dole suggests, but examining the works of someone who has been there may help. Dole refers to Emanuel Swedenborg, the eighteenth-century Swedish scientist and statesman who over the last twenty-seven years of his life had the privileged status of an observer of non-physical worlds, including hell. Swedenborg wrote that we are unconscious residents of the spiritual world as well as the material world, and the hells he encountered have mirrors in our everyday lives.Within this framework, Dole examines questions about evil and hell that have plagued thinkers for centuries: Do we have freedom of choice? Do our spirits exist after death? Does an all-loving God condemn us to hell? If not, can we ourselves become irredeemably evil? What distinguishes Dole's approach to these questions is his open-mindedness and his hopefulness. "Freedom and Evil" brings us face to face with a God of mercy, and it is easy to believe, with Dole, that the gates of hell are not to keep people in but to keep people out. 190pp.
