Neuro:  The New Brain Sciences and the Remaking of the Human

 

Abstract:  This paper is part of a broader research project which evaluates the hypothesis that the emerging field of 'the new brain sciences' is having as significant a social, political and personal impact in the 21st century as did the birth of psychological conceptions of personhood and their associated ways of thinking and acting in the 20th century.
