The relevance of neuroscience for conceptualizing human nature
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Medicine and Pharmacy, Faculty of Medicine, Department of Public Health and Caring Sciences. (Centre for Research Ethics and Bioethics)
2016 (English)In: Idee, ISSN 0394-3054, E-ISSN 1591-0733, Vol. VI, no 11, 121-136 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The paper starts from an outline of a possible cultural interpretation of neuroscience, namely the conceptual simplification of the complexity revealed by recent neuroscientific data and systematized in related theoretical views. On the basis of the conceptual significance of neuroscience, the paper suggests the epigenetic theory of neuronal development and the related informed materialism as fruitful theoretical frameworks for developing a neuro-philosophy that aims at overcoming classical dualistic interpretations such as brain/mind and nature/culture.
