The book begins with a fundamental and existential question: Why are we the way we are? Like never before, science has begun to be a part of society’s general knowledge on the requirement of how mechanisms work, “that range from a gene, from a chromosome, from a molecule … to a dog’s bark, to the feeling of love, to the fact of tenderly remembering something?”
Based on neuroscience, the book suggests fundamental guidelines for understanding the individuality of human behavior through the study of the brain and the nervous system. This book provides a collection of reviews by anthropologists, economists and psychologists who are all willing to direct progress towards universal knowledge.
