Just babies : the origins of good and evil / by Bloom, Paul,1963-;
Includes bibliographical references (pages 223-263) and index.The moral life of babies -- Empathy and compassion -- Fairness, status, and punishment -- Others -- Bodies -- Family matters -- How to be good."A leading cognitive scientist argues that a deep sense of good and evil is bred in the bone. From Sigmund Freud to Lawrence Kohlberg, psychologists have long believed that we begin life as amoral animals. After all, isn't it the parents' role to turn babies into civilized beings who can experience empathy and shame, and override selfish impulses? In Just Babies, Paul Bloom argues that humans are in fact hardwired with a sense of morality. Drawing upon years of original research at his Yale lab, he shows that babies and toddlers can judge the goodness and badness of others' actions; that they act to soothe those in distress; and that they feel guilt, shame, pride, and righteous anger. Yet this innate morality is tragically limited. Our natural strong moral feelings toward those in our own group--same family, same race--are offset by ingrained dislike, even hatred, of those in different groups. Put more simply, we are natural-born bigots. Vivid and intellectually probing, Just Babies argues that through intelligence and creativity we can transcend the primitive sense of morality we are born with. This erudite yet accessible book will captivate readers of Steven Pinker, Philip Zimbardo, and Robert Wright"--

Baby-making / by Fauser, B. C. J. M.(Bart C. J. M.); Devroey, Paul.;
Includes bibliographical references (p. 282-287) and index.In the developed world, the fertility treatments available to couples in the 21st century are wider than ever before. Most types of infertility can be addressed by modern test-tube methods, yet reproduction itself has become inextricably bound with social and political trends such as declining birth rates, delayed first pregnancy, childbirth beyond the age of 40, and the state funding of infertility treatment. It is a topic high on the agenda of politicians in their efforts to reverse declining national fertility rates, and of intensive interest to more and more couples. Assisted reproduction increasingly reflects a life-style choice that is immediately social, cultural, personal, and poilitical. Doctors and professors of reproductive medicine, the authors relay their knowledge of this field's many advances since the first live in-vitro fertilization birth in 1978. These include IVF, sperm injection techniques, egg donation, fertility preservation, single embryo transfer, and reproductive surgery. With reasoned, rational discussion, the authors review the technology, ethical dilemmas, and statistical results of many current practices, providing data from around the world. Looking to the future, they address controversial topics including cloning, pregnancy in older women, and posthumous reproduction. With sympathy for patients who undergo fertility treatment, the authors discuss techniques and outcomes in detail, informing both practitioners and patients. The book's information on the availability of IVF relates to Europe, and the prices for procedures are given in euros.How to design a baby -- What couples want and how we deal with it -- The infertility epidemic -- The right treatment for the right patient -- In search of the embryo guaranteed to implant -- Infertility treatments for fertile people -- Who pays? The social implications -- How far can we go?

Cry, baby : why our tears matter / by Perry, Benjamin(Minister),author.;
Includes bibliographical references (pages [217] -225)."One of our most private acts, weeping can forge connection. Tears may obscure our vision, but they can also bring great clarity. And in both literature and life, weeping often opens a door to transformation or even resurrection. But many of us have been taught to suppress our emotions and hide our tears. When writer Benjamin Perry realized he hadn't cried in more than ten years, he undertook an experiment: to cry every day. But he didn't anticipate how tears would bring him into deeper relationship with a world that's breaking. Cry, Baby explores humans' rich legacy of weeping--and why some of us stopped. With the keen gaze of a journalist and the vulnerability of a good friend, Perry explores the great paradoxes of our tears. Why do we cry? In societies marked by racism, sexism, and homophobia, who is allowed to cry--and who isn't? And if weeping tells us something fundamental about who we are, what do our tears say? Exploring the vast history, literature, physiology, psychology, and spirituality of crying, we can recognize our deepest hopes and longings, how we connect to others, and the social forces bent on keeping us from mourning. When faced with the private and sometimes unspeakable sorrows of daily life, not to mention existential threats like climate change and systemic racism, we cry for the world in which we long to live. As we reclaim our crying as a central part of being human, we not only care for ourselves and relearn how to express our vulnerable emotions; we also prophetically reimagine the future. Ultimately, weeping can bring us closer to each other and to the world we desire and deserve"--Learning to cry -- This is your brain on tears -- Sob stories and transformation -- Cowboys don't cry -- All these wailing women -- Caste against crying -- Seeing through crocodile tears -- The queer art of crying -- Become like children -- Weeping for the world we deserve -- A blessing for crying.
