Brain Research Fads
Steven Rose examines current brain theories in the article In search of the God neuron. His analysis takes place within multiple book reviews and covers a lot of turf. The author notes David Hume's argument that one could not derive an ought from an is. Although I disagree with much of what Hume wrote I think he is on target with that observation. The contemporary rage is that our morality is reducible to genetics and developmental processes. What a crock. It's more fun though to delve into these matters in a feedback forum like Telic Thoughts.
