商品描述 Blueprint: How DNA Makes Us Who We Are:行為遺傳學專家羅伯特·普洛明以科學新發現,解析儘管基因界定了現在的我們,卻無法預測未來發展 人們的性格藍圖來自於人與人之間


內容簡介 行為遺傳學專家羅伯特·普洛明以科學新發現,解析儘管基因界定了現在的我們,卻無法預測未來發展 人們的性格藍圖來自於人與人之間擁有1%不同的基因組合。每個人的個性都深深地受到遺傳資基因差異性的影響,包括智力、內向或外向、精神疾病的弱點,甚至是否為晨型人都深受影響。 行為遺傳學專家羅伯特‧普洛明將在本書借鑒他畢生的研究,證明基因是塑造我們人格的重要因素。儘管家庭背景、學校生活和生長環境都很重要,但卻不如基因如此有影響力。因此他認為不論是教師或家長都應該接受孩子原本的樣貌,而不是試圖重新塑造他們。甚至我們如何選擇生活環境及影響我們人生的各種意外,包括離婚到成癮症,都受到基因排列的影響。而現在,由衷的感謝基因改革,從出生的開始就能預測我們將成為什麼樣的人,也正如作者所揭露的,基因的發展將對人們重新學習如何思考育兒、教育方式和社會流動性產生了深遠的影響。 本書內容將徹底改變該領域相關人員的思維,每一個細胞中存在的基因都將深深地影響我們身為成人的各種行為,了解基因和行為的研究,更能幫助人們理解矛盾的社會現象。 800x600 Normal 0 0 2 false false false EN-US ZH-TW X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 * Style Definitions * table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:表格內文; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-priority:99; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman","serif";}One of the world's top behavioural geneticists argues that we need a radical rethink about what makes us who we areThe blueprint for our individuality lies in the 1% of DNA that differs between people. Our intellectual capacity, our introversion or extraversion, our vulnerability to mental illness, even whether we are a morning person - all of these aspects of our personality are profoundly shaped by our inherited DNA differences.In Blueprint, Robert Plomin, a pioneer in the field of behavioural genetics, draws on a lifetime's worth of research to make the case that DNA is the most important factor shaping who we are. Our families, schools and the environment around us are important, but they are not as influential as our genes. This is why, he argues, teachers and parents should accept children for who they are, rather than trying to mould them in certain directions. Even the environments we choose and the signal events that impact our lives, from divorce to addiction, are influenced by our genetic predispositions. Now, thanks to the DNA revolution, it is becoming possible to predict who we will become, at birth, from our DNA alone. As Plomin shows us, these developments have sweeping implications for how we think about parenting, education, and social mobility.A game-changing book by a leader in the field, Blueprint shows how the DNA present in the single cell with which we all begin our lives can impact our behaviour as adults.
