LIBRO 2: SEX AT DAWN -- y un mapa de lo que viene

OK, no estoy del todo convencido, pero: muchos votos para Sex At Dawn: The Prehistoric Origins of Modern Sexuality. Será nuestro libro de abril. Está acá en formato PDF y acá está en otros formatos según nos cuenta @guillgal (El .MOBI --listado tercero-- está purísimo y oro para Kindle). Recuerden que con el programa Calibre pueden convertirse textos entre distintos formatos, como PDF, epub, mobi (que sirve para Kindle) o azw (que es el de Amazon propiamente dicho).

No estoy del todo convencido porque tiene el riesgo de ser un caso de PEPA (psicología evolutiva un poco apresurada) pero bueno, buen puntaje en Goodreads y tema taquillero. Otra virtud: un capítulo dedicado a La Maldición del Señor Coolidge. (En referencia al trágico efecto Coolidge, por favor leer en Wikipedia su significado). Y además, chicas, por lo que ojeé creo que sugiere que nuestra naturaleza poligámica es propia de ambos sexos. Otra cosa: me parece que aclara bien algunos malentendidos sobre la selección natural (sobre todo, combate esa concepción simil-religiosa, teleológica, según la cual "evolución" significa "mejora"). Es un libro que tiene un contra-libro: Sex At Dusk, que acusa a los autores de Sex At Dawn de equivocarse al postular que en la preshistoria "men and women engaged in fairly free and casual bonobo-like sexual activity". Bonobo-like! Miren:

Copado, huh?

La idea es la siguiente. Todavía no estamos "Out of Africa" temporalmente. Entonces podemos dedicar un poquito a aprender de "nuestra naturaleza". En la misma línea, el comentarista Il Postino propone otro que parece bueno: "Why Humans Share Food" para algún momento. Creo que esto nos empieza a plantear la idea de si el recorrido será sólo temporal o también habrá libros temáticos que abarcan distinos períodos. En fin, se acomodarán los melones al andar.

Hubo muchas buenas propuestas para continuar este viaje. Yo diría: leamos este sobre sexualidad, que parece fácil y relajado, y quizás alguno aprovecha para ponerse al día con Diamond. Después (mayo) alguno más histórico sobre nuestra vida en África. De momento, la principal propuesta para la temprana vida humana en África son los primeros capítulos de Africa: A Biography of a Continent.

Para el Out of Africa, el comentarista Miguelio propuso: "Out of Eden: The Peopling of the World", que suena prometedor, y que podríamos acompañar de este documental muy bueno sobre el tema que también recomienda Miguelio: "The Incredible Human Journey".

Una vez fuera de África podemos pasar a la novela que yo proponía como opción (A), que ya es sobre los Cromagnon, u otras que se mencionaron. Y supongo que podríamos coronar el año o el semestre (según cuanto nos copemos con la vida paleolítica) con el gran libro de Diamond, "Guns, Germs and Steel", que ya es sobre el paso a la agricultura. Ahí sí empezaríamos con las "civilizaciones".

Espero que funcione. Pido disculpas si no incoporo aquí todas las sugerencias. Recuerden que la idea es que posteen todos los que quieren, para eso tiene que poner el mail aquí abajo; a todos los mails que me llegaron les envié invitaciones para ser posteadores.

Algunos avisos administrativos:

(1) No es seguro que esto se mantenga como plataforma. Lo siento poco interactivo, muy dependiente de mi propio posteo. Iremos viendo. A mí Facebook no me cae muy bien, y Twitter no tiene el formato adecuado. Quizá Google+? No sé. Yo desde ahora cada vez que posteo, cuando me pregunta "Share in Google+" pongo que sí, pero no sé muy bien qué quiere decir. Creo que tienen que ser amigos de moi (Lucas Llach). Estar en mis círculos (?).

(2) Mientras tanto, sería práctico que se suscribieran, ahí a la derecha de su pantalla, señora, para recibir los posts por mail, así no tengo que hacer el aleteo de cortejo por Twitter para avisar cada vez que posteo.

(3) Trataremos de ser hiperrecontra puntuales: que nuestros tiempos de lectura se adapten al reloj, y no viceversa. Ajustemos, en todo caso, por cuánto lee cada uno de cada libro. Pero el viaje sigue. Puede ser hermoso.

  1. Aviso administrativo 1: creo que Google+ es una excelente opción. Dentro de tu perfil de G+, tenes la opción para crear una "comunidad" (abierta o cerrada). Quizás este sea el formato ideal para estos intercambios.
    Además, aunque no tengas G+ abierto, recibis las notificaciones en el header de Gmail.
    Saludos!

    worth enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made
    excellent content material as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
