Abstract

“In the spirit of critical friendship” between the human and social sciences on the one hand, and the neurosciences on the other, Nikolas Rose and Joelle Abi-Rached trace a part historical, part sociological, and part philosophical analysis of contemporary brain science in Neuro: The New Brain Sciences and the Management of the Mind. Their valuable synthetic account surveys a wide range of primary scientific literature, as well as legal and policy debates. Neuro aims to consider what impact, if any, neurobiological research has had on our conceptions of human nature, the relationship between brain and person, and how we govern ourselves.
