Danerous Emotions by Alphonso Lingis
coverOn Human Nature by Edward O. Wilson.

In a superb synthesis of the biological and social sciences, Wilson attempts to explain the core principles of our shared humanity as the accumulated result of evolutionary processes over millions of years. His account is remarkable in that it includes comparisons and examples from a diverse range of life-forms, human cultures, and branches of human knowledge. Wilson's empathy with his subject is compelling; his fundamental understanding of socio-biological principles, and sometimes deeply intuitive application of them to other fields is always thought-provoking if not entirely convincing. A worthy and mind-broadening book. -- anonymous review

Robert M. YoungCreated and Maintained by Panos Parissis

This website is dedicated to the promotion of Humanistic Principles.  STI is about ideas that evolved into books, or the other way around. It promotes moral and social development based on scientific knowledge, reason, compassion, individual liberty and responsibility, instead of dogmatic beliefs and doctrines. 


Human Nature by Robert M. Young and Ian Pitchford

Robert M. YoungThis web site has been set up with the broad aim of bringing into  communication the variety of approaches to the understanding of human nature which have a regrettable tendency to be less in touch with one another than they might.

We will make welcome writings and discussions on history, philosophy and social studies in the human sciences; Darwinian scholarship; evolutionary psychology, sociobiology and debates about them; cognitive psychology; neuropsychology, modularity; narrative approaches; hermeneutics; verstehen; biography and autobiography; behavioral genetics; psychoanalytic and psychodynamic approaches and so on. This list of topics and disciplines is meant to be suggestive, not exhaustive.

Our main aim is both to act as host to original work and to seek to create an enabling space, a forum for constructive (including constructively critical) discussion and critiques of the terms of reference and assumptions of various approaches to the understanding of people as individuals, in groups, in institutions, in societies and as political and ideological beings.

We are affiliated with a number of existing email forums and web sites and will add others as we think it appropriate to do so. We also provide a number of guides to internet resources, bibliographies and reading lists. We will add to these on an ongoing basis and welcome contributions and suggestions for links.


The web site and others associated with it
contain extensive archives of classical papers (e.g., by Barbara
Heyl and David Ingleby) and most, and, in some cases, nearly all,
of the writings of certain writers on human nature, group relations
and society, e.g., David Armstrong, W. Gordon Lawrence, Toma
Tomov, Robert M. Young, including a number of complete books,
e.,g., by some of the above and by Em Farrell on eating disorders,
David Clark on the story of a mental hospital. Others will be added
in due course.


We are particularly interested in receiving overviews of recent
work in disciplines relevant to the understanding of human nature,
e.g., particular human sciences, narrative psychology, including
historical and philosophical approaches.


Future: We invite authors and publishers to send us books at an
early stage so that we can get them reviewed so as to appear on
the web site at or very near the date of publication. Manuscripts or
proofs can be sent (by post), providing that a copy of the published
work is also sent when it is available.

Present: People wishing to offer reviews of recently-published
works are welcome to propose ideas or to submit reviews (as
attachments, preferably in RTF - Rich Text Format).

Past: We are also open to essays about books which have been
published at any time, about which contributors to the site may
wish to write an essay, critique or appreciation.

Books may be sent by post to Human-Nature.Com, 26 Freegrove
Road, London N7 9RQ, England.

To propose writings or other projects for the web site, write to
