Summary
"Many scholars, using anthropology, psychology, and evolution, argue that our ethical and moral life evolved from nature. Distinguished neuroscientist Donald W. Pfaff, Ph. D., takes that proposition a critical step further, right to the basics: brain signals." "In this first book to describe how ethics maybe a hardwired function of the human brain, Pfaff explains how specific brain circuits cause us to consider an action toward another as if it were happening to us, prompting us to treat others as we wish to be treated ourselves. Pfaff presents a rock-solid hypothesis of why humans across time and geography have such similar notions of good and bad, right and wrong."--Jacket
