Neurophilosophy of Global Security 2019

How does the ‘emotional amoral egoism’ of man shape the global system?

Is morality innate or alterable? Are emotions and rational decisions intertwined? How critical is the balance between human nature and human dignity? Human nature is at the centre of political theory and public policy, but our notions of what that precisely means are often oversimplified and subjective, lacking scientific rigour. Significant advances in neuroscience, brain-imaging and neurochemistry are helping to clarify what shapes our actions and emotions, at an individual level and collectively.

 

GEOPOLITICS AND GLOBAL FUTURES SYMPOSIUM
