I disagree with almost all of his conclusions. Paperbackpages. What is needed here is a solid dose of humility and less reaching for the grandiose.
The modern reader will recognize all too well that the book’s imperative rings even truer today, despite Morris’ having to sound like a fanatic at the time of its initial publishing. His mainstream impact is understandable by the time the book is published and the author’s purposed intent of creating controversy. Vestiges of our ape life are our greater reliance on sight at the expense of smell and a more various taste palate.
We do dedmond we do because we are all Unfortunately, this book did not meet my expectations.
The book owes a little bit to psychoanalysis which was more dominant at the time. It seems that much of our aesthetics, tastes, curiosity, and enjoyment of life are owed to our more ape aspects. The cop will shoot you. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. His ideas sometimes lean dangerously towards social Darwinism– minority cultures with “bizarre” practices are aberrations in human evolution, and their behaviors can be dismissed as irrelevant to the discussion of human behavior.

I do feel that the concept could be used again and a better book written from this view point on humans as the naked ape.

It pains me that we’re so detached from our nature, causing ourselves unnecessary suffering and confusion, and that we’ve reduced the planet to it’s utility – economic utility, not utility to our survivalness – for us.
