Summary
  • "The Consilient Brain: The Bioneurological, Basis of Economics, Society, and Politics expands upon, and takes in new directions, the theme of the author's earlier work The Reciprocal Modular Brain in Economics and Politics, which has been called path-breaking and foundational by expert reviewers in brain science and the social sciences
  • Drawing on the triune brain concept of Paul MacLean and the needs hierarchy of Abraham Maslow this book creates a new model of behavior. Emerging out of the dynamic between self-preservational and affectional or empathic behavior, the book expands on the notion of reciprocity as the pervasive norm of society
  • Cory's book is an attempt to show that the reciprocal consilient brain is the dynamic shaping mechanism across the multidisciplinary spectrum from evolutionary neuroscience through the alternative social perspectives of anthropology, sociology, economics, political science, and ethics."--Jacket
