    More Than Human is one of the few books in the Box Of Paperbacks I’d read before. I liked it quite a bit the first time, and I’ve been saving it until some point relatively late in the project. Having sold more than million copies worldwide, Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling is the best-selling book series in history. The first novel in the series, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, has sold in excess of million copies, making it one of the best-selling books of all time. As of June , the series has been translated into

    In his collection More Than Human published in , Flach makes a photographic exploration of animal species ranging from mammals to marine creatures to insects. By removing the creatures from their natural environments, and shooting in a minimal studio setting, the images take on a curiously ‘portrait-like’ appearance, usually distinct to.

More Than Human is the first book I've ever read by him. At first it was surprising and startling and odd, but his style and pace are easy enough to learn 4/5. “More Than Human” is about some most unlikely misfits who together form the next step in human evolution. Like anything worthy of being a classic, it is so much more than just that.

It is more in the way the story unfolds and what it has to say about all of us/5(). Just as did Flach’s highly acclaimed previous books, Equus and Dogs, More than Human will amaze and inspire, in a constant affirmation of the animal, whether it be rare or common, powerful or defenseless, odd or majestic.

The book showcases a menagerie of creatures—pandas, tigers, bats, lions, orangutans, cobras, bullfrogs, chimpanzees /5(97). More than human argues that same urge that took our ancestors through the great leap forw years ago to start fashioning tools rather than simply being hunter gathers is the same urge that will push to us an acceptance of biological enhancements to evolve our species/5.

More Than Human Summary. We know this book can be confusing and fragmentary, so that's why we're giving you the gist right here, right now.

Lone asks Baby what Gerry is. The teen looks at the three kids in the room, who somehow seem to be more than just three individuals. A girl, obviously Janie, is painting with her hands, a little black.

More Than Human Series Long ago, there lived two species on Earth; shifters and humans. In a battle for dominance, war broke out between the two and only one species survived. Book Review of More Than Human Warning: all of my book reviews contain spoilers.

I have mixed feelings about this book. The idea of a composite human, where the "parts" communicate telepathically is intriguing. However, in the book, we see very little about what this "human" does, or how it works.

Overall, More Than Human has some. The separation from more-than-human nature is seen as rooted in the very nature of humans. Others have suggested that the separation has historical, rather than prehistoric, roots.

The Judeo-Christian tradition has been seen as central to the separation from nature (White, ). For others, Greek rationalism has been the source of the : John Scull. More Human by Steve Hilton review – blue-sky writing Cameron’s former adviser has produced a book easy to mock for its wide-eyed ideas, but harder to dismiss Nick CohenAuthor: Nick Cohen.

Ty finds more than he expects when a human, thought to be extinct, turns up in the trap. What is even more confusing is his bear's reaction to the female.

When word escapes about his discovery, Ty must fight to protect the unusual woman who is more than an oddity. Bibliography: Theodore Sturgeon () was a US writer. He was born Edward Hamilton Waldo in New York City.

His novels are The Dreaming Jewels (, also called The Synthetic Man ()), More Than Human (fixup, ), The Cosmic Rape (), Venus Plus X (), and Godbody (). Sturgeon's short fiction collections are Without Sorcery (, also.

More Than Human shows how, in Sturgeon's opinion, people can blesh, ethically speaking. Zoom forward a decade. Counterculture hippies are really into the book, particularly authors of the New Wave, the next sci-fi movement. So More Than Human basically bridges the Golden Age and the New Wave.

Ta-da. More Than Human (Book): Sturgeon, Theodore: Lone, Janie, Baby, and Gerry, each possessed of an unusual talent, discover that together they are superhuman and must decide whether to use their powers for good or evil.

About More Than Human. In this genre-bending novel—among the first to have launched sci-fi into the arena of literature—one of the great imaginers of the twentieth century tells a story as mind-blowing as any controlled substance and as affecting as a glimpse into a stranger’s soul.

Theodore Sturgeon was born in Staten Island, New York in He lived in New York City, upstate New York, and Los Angeles. In addition to More Than Human, winner of the International Fantasy Award, he is the author of Venus Plus X; To Marry Medusa; The Dreaming Jewels; and numerous other books and won the Hugo and Nebula Awards for his /5(16).

Distilling the most radical accomplishments being made in labs worldwide, including gene therapy, genetic engineering, stem cell research, life extension, brain-computer interfaces, and cloning, More Than Human offers an exciting tour of the impact biotechnology will have on our lives.

Take for example Sturgeon's most famous book, More Than Human. The first hundred pages set up a series of puzzles, built around isolated characters with fragmentary personal histories and anomalous behavior patterns.

And just when the reader feels that a specific situation is beginning to clarify itself, Sturgeon shifts scenes. More Than Human, Pt. 1 - Junior Spring Semester Ch. 1 - Just An Old Friend Coming Over or Blood Never Forgets-sbj-The landscape of Townsville unfurled like a winter blanket underneath the dim glow of the morning sun as they approached the city.

Blossom rolled down the car window a tad just for an inhale of the crisp January air. The value of investing in human resources. Chapter 4: Methuselah's Genes Single genetic changes can double life span in many species. The prospects for extending human life. Chapter 5: Choosing Our Life Spans More on the prospects of genetically and bioechemically slowing, halting, or reversing human aging.

Chapter 6: Methuselah's World. More-than-Human Sociology is a call for a bolder, more creative sociology. Olli Pyyhtinen argues that to make sociology responsive to life in the 21st century we need a new sociological imagination, one that addresses connectivity, understands the world in which we live as both a human and non-human world, and is sensitive to the multiple scales on which things exist.

David Abram is a cultural ecologist and philosopher who lectures and teaches widely on several continents. He is the author of Becoming Animal: An Earthly Cosmology (Pantheon, ), and The Spell of the Sensuous: Perception and Language in a .Chapter 1 Redefining healthy urban environments.

Part I: Understanding more-than-human theories. Chapter 2 The Affective Turn: non-representational theories, affect and emotions.

Chapter 3 The New Materialisms Turn: materiality, vital materialism and assemblages. Chapter 4 The Practice Turn: social practices, performance and routine.

For years now I’ve lived with that multi-hyphenate phrase of David Abram’s careening between my ears: a more-than-human world. He coined it to anchor the subtitle to his phenomenal first book, The Spell of the Sensuous: Perception and Language in a More-Than-Human World, which has served as my own anchor for several years.
