    I am sociobiologist and the author of four books. I have written nonfiction articles and materials on evolutionary psychology, social philosophy, sociology and the philosophy of history. I like to discuss these and other similar problems and find solutions. Really my work is unconventional evolutionary psychology, based on conventional knowledge.

    My book has been translated into English by professional translator, I have good understanding of English, but my writing skill are not good enough.

    Sounds interesting. If we need to read your Book (s ) we will. There maybe the type of background sources on The Science Forum. Maybe you would like to Poste some extracts from your work in half page quoted format so Members can relate to the basic principles and how they are expressed.

    If the vwork appears progressive and is going somewhere then perhaps there will be enough Input from Members to assist you in your Research. Welcome aboard. westwind.

    Thank you!
    I think if I place some extracts here it can be understood as a ad.
    My book is big, and Amazon shows 10% free, it is 4 whole chapters or 25 pages.
    All basic principles placed in beginning, and so they are free. :-)

    Looks like an interesting book.

    Are you a guy? I only ask becuase your name looks like a male to me, yet the book seems to talk a lot about things from a female perspective.

    You're kidding, aren't you? Freud and dozens of other male authors before and since have claimed to do that - and made a complete hash of it. The more recent sociobiologists have made similar over-reaching claims to 'understand' women's actions and reasoning.

    I didn't see anything in the Amazon summation that would encourage me to spend even a measly $3 on it. I'd need a recommendation from someone I respect before I'd reconsider.

    Yes, you are right. Sociobiologists have found many useful and interesting thing, but no one has the general non-contradicted system. I have.
    No one give you a recommendation, because they a very cautious.
    All basic principles placed in beginning, and so they are free. It is enough to get right appreciation of the whole text.

    If the validity of some scientific research depends upon the sex of the scientist, then maybe we are not dealing with a real science at all. I can't imagine a book on physics or math written from a "female perspective."

    Women write books nether better nor worse than man; they write just the other books. Other accents and other viewpoints may be interesting. As for evolutionary psychology it is an especially.

    There's a lot of material, even fairly recent material, that claims to be scientific on questions of sex and race. Nobody nowadays would grant Freud's methods or analysis the title of scientific. Very imaginative with some novel ideas for his time and situation, maybe even a genius, but not scientific. And when you read the tedious stuff with the advantage of a century's hindsight and not being from the same stultified culture, you can see the biases he never even tried to eliminate from his thinking. None of his work was subjected to anything like peer review. Disagreements were treated as philosophical arguments.

    Others of his time were working assiduously to prove that women and/or black people were incapable of the intellectual, rational thought of the white middle class men doing this admirable work. Certainly it meant they wouldn't be able to vote or act as a representative. And the 18th century notions of phrenology were also being taken seriously. Science as we know it didn't even apply to a lot of this as anyone who's spent more than 10 minutes on Jung's or Freud's "work" on dreams will know. It might have been an important stage in the progression towards scientific thinking in those areas. Their own work might have been clever, scientific it was not.

    Pretty well all of this stuff was not scientific at all. Some of it was political. Some of it was downright ludicrous.

    Freud is excellent to disagree with him

    from my book:
    The biological norm is replaced by the social norm. What society considers to be correct is also considered to be a biologically correct norm. But it would be right initially to analyse to what extent society itself conforms to the norm. We should add that in the course of time the ‘social norm’ has included paedophilia, homosexual paedophilia, incestuous marriages, female circumcision, marriage by contract, sacrifice of the first-born, ritual cannibalism. Each society considers its ‘norms’ to be true and final, and regards itself as embodying the highest form of social development.
