Description
 
Leslie Brothers (au). Offers a major argument about the social dimension of the human brain. Discusses the tale of Robinson Crusoe as a metaphor for neuroscience’s classic (& flawed) notion of the brain: a starkly isolated figure. But our brains have evolved a specialized capacity for exchanging signals with other brains -- they are designed to be social. This can be seen in the brain’s sensitive attunement to the meanings of facial expressions & physical gestures & the way it assigns mental lives to physical bodies. Brothers shows how our daily interaction creates an organized social world -- a network of brains that generates meaningful behavior & thought.
