Evoluti e abbandonati. Sesso, politica, morale: Darwin spiega proprio tutto?

Alcuni pensano che il nostro cervello sia fermo all'età della pietra, come se l. a. selezione naturale ci avesse plasmato nel Pleistocene e poi abbandonato al nostro destino. Sui mass media spopolano i riferimenti all'evoluzione biologica dei comportamenti umani, soprattutto politici e sessuali. Dire che l'evoluzione ci ha programmati fin dal Paleolitico consistent with avere un determinato impulso innato è una tentazione irresistibile, che ci fa raccontare un sacco di storie fantasiose e zeppe di stereotipi.

It should have a thick bottom to prevent the food from sticking and burning, and it must be sufficiently robust to withstand repeated scouring and the knocks of daily use.

If it is intended to appear on the dinner table, it will probably have some suitable decorative pattern on the outside. But the ornamentation will not be so elaborate or so finely executed as it would have 26 MOVEMENT AND CHANGE IN LIFELESS BODIES been if it were a show-piece for display in a cabinet.

But here for the first time we are faced with a body that seems to be moving towards more than one goal, whereas the paradigm of rectilinear motion suggests that it is not possible to travel towards two different destinations at the same time. 10 We must therefore pause to take note of how Aristotle combines the weapons of distinction and subordination to defend his doctrine of final causes. Let us begin with the necessity of making distinctions. One simply has to accept that the definition of a finis will vary according to the point of view from which one chooses to consider the motus.

It is enough to imagine that the boy on the beach threw his stone at a passing seagull to be reminded that violent motion can have a purpose when it is considered from the standpoint of the agent; and the standard Aristotelian example of movement directed to a definite goal was in fact that of a projectile - the flight of an arrow to its 'proveduto fine'. In this perspective, the violent motion of a patient body must have its immediate or ultimate source in the natural motion of some agent or other.
