4.0 out of 5 stars comprehensive introduction, 18 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good introductory book with plenty of references. The reader will be able to discover the pataphysics in their different aspects. However, if you are looking for a simple, funny, story, I would not consider this book, since an academic approach/style has been adopted to write it. It is easy to read but some passages may appear long sometimes.

4.0 out of 5 stars good book, 27 Mar 2013

really good book to explain the history and development of Sexual selection. Some useful readings to complete it could be the Gould's Structure of evolutionary theory (Note Gould wrote elsewhere that humain intelligence did not evolved with time, i.e. that modern humans are not more clever than those from the past). The reading of this book record me one of the German Max Scheller's Human place in the cosmos but as well as to Nietzsche's works (first cited in this book with Thorstein Veblen). Interestingly, the chapt. 354 (book 5) and 11 (book 1) of the Gaya Science explain the uprising of consciousness-langage in humains by other ways.
I recommend the The Mating Mind for everybody interesting in the subject, for everybody.
