die rhetorik der neurowissenschaft.

Interessantes Interview von Jonah Lehrer mit Davi Johnson Thornton über deren Buch Brain Culture: Neuroscience and Popular Media:

„On the one hand, the brain is ‚the most complicated object in the universe‘ and ‚the final frontier of modern science.‘ And yet, we also routinely describe the brain as the most practical of organs, a machine we can harness and hack for endless self-improvement.“

„In the book, I’m trying to parse out the consequences and effects of these brain languages and images – good, bad, and ambiguous – at the level of culture, politics and economics, and withhold anything like an ultimate judgment.“ [#]
