📙 The Naked Woman: A Study of the Female Body by Desmond Morris — free epub


Книга ведет читателя в путешествие по женскому телу, объясняя многие его необыкновенные свойства. Это вовсе не медицинский текст и не психологический лабораторный анализ, а скорее зоологический портрет, прославляя женщин с тех пор, как они появились в реальном мире, в их естественном окружении. Это попытка взглянуть на женщин как на биологический вид, разобраться в причинах, которые сделали современных женщин такими, какие они есть, а так же разобраться в природе некоторых явлений. Например, в моде – почему женщины любят украшать некоторые части своего тела или скрывать другие. Автор книги (написал бестселлеры «Голый мужчина» и «Голая обезьяна») – Десмонд Моррис, ученый с мировым именем, который сделал беспрецедентный шаг в истории науки – он посмотрел на один из самых распространенных на земле видов – на человека так, как ученый изучал бы другие биологические виды. И это дало очень оригинальные плоды, которые может и не перевернут вашего сознания, но уж точно дадут пищу для размышлений. Научно-популярное издание «Голая женщина» написано понятным языком, без лишних научных терминов, так что подойдет любому любознательному читателю. Книга иллюстрирована, язык публикации - английский.
