The future of the brain : the promise and perils of tomorrow's neuroscience by Steven P. R Rose( )

21 editions published between 2004 and 2016 in English and Chinese and held by 2,187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Brain repair, smart pills, mind-reading machines--modern neuroscience promises to soon deliver a remarkable array of wonders as well as profound insight into the nature of the brain. But these exciting new breakthroughs, warns Steven Rose, will also raise troubling questions about what it means to be human. In The Future of the Brain, Rose explores just how far neuroscience may help us understand the human brain--including consciousness--and to what extent cutting edge technologies should have the power to mend or manipulate the mind. Rose first offers a panoramic look at what we now know about the brain, from its three-billion-year evolution, to its astonishingly rapid development in the embryo, to the miraculous process of infant development (how a brain becomes a human). More important, he shows what all this science can--and cannot--tell us about the human condition. He examines questions that still baffle scientists: if our genes are 99% identical to those of chimpanzees, if our brains are composed of identical molecules, arranged in pretty similar cellular patterns, how come we are so different? And he explores the potential threats and promises of new technologies and their ethical, legal, and social implications, wondering how far we should go in eliminating unwanted behavior or enhancing desired characteristics, focusing on the new "brain steroids" and on the use of Ritalin to control young children. The Future of the Brain is a remarkable look at what the brain sciences are telling us about who we are and where we came from--and where we may be headed in the years ahead
Not in our genes : biology, ideology, and human nature by Richard C Lewontin( Book )

46 editions published between 1984 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 1,562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this classic work, three eminent scientists expose and dismantle the claims that class, race, and gender inequalities are the products of our biological and genetic inheritances. Not in Our Genes provides a bold and biting critique of biological determinism and sociobiology. In refuting the claim that what individuals can and cannot do is fixed, in essence, by their genetic makeup, the authors offer an important reply to an argument raging far beyond the scientific world and widely affecting our society and our lives. This edition features a new introduction by the authors

Alas, poor Darwin : arguments against evolutionary psychology( Book )

31 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and held by 894 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The claim of genetics and evolutionary psychology to explain and indeed legislate on the human condition have been loudly trumpeted in recent years in a host of popular books." "Biologists, social scientists and philosophers have begun to rebel against this roughshod ride over their different understandings of the world, demonstrating that the claims of evolutionary psychology rest on shaky empirical evidence, flawed premises and unexamined political presuppositions. In this provocative and groundbreaking book, Hilary Rose and Steven Rose have gathered together the leading and outspoken critics of this fashionable ideology, from Britain and the United States, in a shared and perhaps uniquely cross-disciplinary project." "The result of this joint work is a critique of the most fashionable ideology of recent years. What emerges is a new perspective which challenges the reductionism of evolutionary psychology ad offers a richer understanding of the biosocial nature of the human condition."--BOOK JACKET

From brains to consciousness? : essays on the new sciences of the mind by Steven P. R Rose( Book )

20 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and German and held by 622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Neuroscientists now approach some of the deepest problems of the human condition - from illnesses and disorders such as Alzheimer's disease and schizophrenia, to the search for the nature of consciousness itself - in the belief that their science can say something useful about these processes and how to intervene in them. At the same time, by addressing the biological mechanisms involved in phenomena as varied as street violence, drug addiction and sexual orientation, the new science raises profound ethical, legal, social and medical questions. Over many of these issues there is no clear consensus but rather, intense debate. Is memory a molecular process? Is schizophrenia a genetic disorder? What does the future hold for psychopharmacology? Can consciousness be computed and is artificial intelligence a real prospect? From Brains to Consciousness? brings together fourteen of the world's leading neuroscientists, psychologists, computer modellers and philosophers, in a series of chapters that offer fascinating and up-to-the-minute insight into the debates that are taking place in this exciting area of research
Lifelines : biology beyond determinism by Steven P. R Rose( Book )

9 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 612 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Lifelines, biologist Steven Rose offers a powerful alternative to the ultra-Darwinist claims of Dawkins, E.O. Wilson, Daniel Dennett, and others. Rose argues against an extreme reductionist approach that would make the gene the key to understanding human nature, in favor of a more complex and richer vision of life. He urges instead that we focus on the organism and in particular on the organism's lifeline: the trajectory it takes through time and space. Our personal lifeline, Rose points out, is unique - even identical twins, with identical genes at birth, will differ over time. These differences are obviously not embedded in our genes, but come about through our developmental trajectory in which genes, as part of the biochemical orchestra of trillions of cells in each human body, have an important part - but only a part - to play. To illustrate this idea, Rose examines recent research in modern biology, and especially two disciplines - genetics (which looks at the impact of genes on form) and developmental biology (which examines the interaction between the organism and the environment) - and he explores new ideas on biological complexity proposed by scientists such as Stuart Kauffman. He shows how our lifelines are constructed through the interplay of physical forces - such as the intrinsic chemistry of lipids and proteins, and the self-organizing and stabilizing properties of complex metabolic webs - and he reaches a startling conclusion: that organisms are active players in their own fate, not simply the playthings of the gods, nature, or the inevitable workings out of gene-driven natural selection. The organism is both the weaver and the pattern it weaves."

Can neuroscience change our minds? by Hilary Rose( Book )

10 editions published in 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Neuroscience, with its astounding new technologies, is uncovering the workings of the brain and with this perhaps the mind. The 'neuro' prefix spills out into every area of life, from neuroaesthetics to neuroeconomics, neurogastronomy and neuroeducation. With its promise to cure physical and social ills, government sees neuroscience as a tool to increase the 'mental capital' of the children of the deprived and workless. It sets aside intensifying poverty and inequality, instead claiming that basing children's rearing and education on brain science will transform both the child's and the nation's health and wealth. Leading critic of such neuropretensions, neuroscientist Steven Rose and sociologist of science Hilary Rose take a sceptical look at these claims and the science underlying them, sifting out the sensible from the snake oil. Examining the ways in which science is shaped by and shapes the political economy of neoliberalism, they argue that neuroscience on its own is not able to bear the weight of these hopes."--Publisher's website
