Robo sapiens japanicus Book Description :

Japan is arguably the first postindustrial society to embrace the prospect of human-robot coexistence. Over the past decade, Japanese humanoid robots designed for use in homes, hospitals, offices, and schools have become celebrated in mass and social media throughout the world. In Robo sapiens japanicus, Jennifer Robertson casts a critical eye on press releases and public relations videos that misrepresent robots as being as versatile and agile as their science fiction counterparts. An ethnography and sociocultural history of governmental and academic discourse of human-robot relations in Japan, this book explores how actual robots—humanoids, androids, and animaloids—are “imagineered” in ways that reinforce the conventional sex/gender system ...

Sapiens Book Description :

University Press returns with another short and captivating book - a brief history of our human species: Homo sapiens. All the humans who ever lived are extinct - except for Homo sapiens. We are, in Latin, the "wise humans." We are the sole survivors of a long and deadly battle against the forces of nature and time. The first humans - hominids - diverged from the other primates and began to walk upright on two legs some 3 million years ago. The first "modern" humans - Homo sapiens - diverged from the other hominids some 250,000 years ago. Since then, modern humans and our big brains migrated out of Africa, developed the capacity for language, domesticated animals, became farmers, got religious, built cities, invented money, expanded empires, harnesse...

Homo Sapiens But Dumber poses the question: Have we evolved from early man to modern intelligence only to throw it all away with risky behavior? Cro-Magnon man started with low intellect, but evolved over the millennia to develop language, fire, the wheel, the written word, electricity, and today's modern inventions that are truly mind boggling. But instead of honing our intelligence into worthwhile pursuits, many use alcohol and drugs to numb their brains, and then sit like coach potatoes in front of the television. Are we dumbing ourselves backward on the evolutionary scale? Can we develop intelligent intelligence and self-discipline in children, so they can choose what is valuable in their lives, while avoiding the self-destructive behavior in our...
