Jesse J. Prinz ð 3 free read free read Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB ð Jesse J. Prinz review Beyond Human Nature How Culture and Experience Shape Our Lives A timely and uniuely compelling plea for the importance of nurture in the ongoing nature nurture debateIn this era of genome projects and brain scans it is all too easy to overestimate the role of biology in human psychology But in this passionate corrective to the idea that DNA is destiny Jesse Prinz focuses on the most extraordinary aspect of human n. If you care about human beings and our future you should hope this book is right Mr Prinz is a philosopher and he believes that the nature nurture debate has swung too far towards nature in this era when molecular biology and neurobiology are ascendant This book was written to try and swing the balance back towards nurtureIf nature is a bigger factor then we are all stuck with what we were given at our conception But if Mr Prinz right and nurture is important then we all have the chance at a good life We just need to figure out how to improve our cultural beliefs and institutions so they nurture everyoneThe book covers these topics traits such as intelligence knowledge thinking feelings and moralityFor each topic Mr Prinz describes the arguments and research that support the nature hypothesis in detail Then he systematically pokes hole in every aspect of the arguments and builds the case for nurture Of course he doesn t argue that nature has no effect he s just providing a correction to the current love affair with the idea that everything is rooted in biologyFor example research has shown that intelligence is variable throughout an individual s lifetime and the environment a person is in has a lot to do with how much of that person s potential is expressed There are a lot of interesting ideas in here such as the concept that human emotions like guilt are actually blends of simpler emotions Perhaps guilt is just a blend of fear and sadness and envy is a blend of anger and desireThis uestion caught my interest Do we think in language or in images I feel strongly that the answer is images but I plan on learning about this debate

Prinz review Beyond Human Nature How Culture and Experience Shape Our Lives Ature that nurture can supplement and supplant nature allowing our minds to be profoundly influenced by experience and culture Drawing on cutting edge research in neuroscience psychology and anthropology Prinz shatters the myth of human uniformity and reveals how our differing cultures and life experiences make each of us uniue Along the way he shows t. Good counter arguments to Steven Pinker s Blank Slate Counter arguments perhaps too strong Prinz doesn t deny human nature but claims it s controlling influence has been at times overstatedTightly organized well elucidated seems to cover all the ground but I m no expert Calls into uestion the interpretations results of many earlier studies making you realize that much care needs to be given to interpreting any study s results Gives us hope somewhat ie that we re not so completely pre determined A 1 on 1 debate between these two would be fascinatingmaybe there is one I ll check you tube later
