Please note that the dates of the course needs to be confirmed!

Part of the Geopolitics and Global Futures Symposium 2024

Human nature is at the centre of political theory and public policy, but our notions of it are often oversimplified and subjective, lacking scientific rigour. Significant advances in neuroscience, brain-imaging and neurochemistry are helping to elucidate what shapes our actions and emotions, as individuals and collectively. 
The course explains the neurophilosophical concept of “Emotional Amoral Egoism” in reference to both man and state, demonstrating how it affects international relations and governance.
