The Neuroscience of Guilt Uncovers the Origin of Cooperation

The Neuroscience of Guilt Uncovers the Origin of Cooperation | Cognitive Science | Scoop.it
Evidence of altruism and cooperation in the evolution of human culture keeps accumulating. It appears that the more complex our culture becomes, and its complexity is increasing exponentially, the more important it becomes for us to be in cooperation and to recognize our interdependence. We are doing this well (microscale) and failing miserably (macroscale).

CultureLab: Thoughts within thoughts make us human

CultureLab: Thoughts within thoughts make us human | Cognitive Science | Scoop.it
Cogito ergo sum - I think, therefore I am - was coined by René Descartes in 1637. He was struggling to find a solid philosophical basis for how we know about reality and truth.

This is also turns out to be of the most famous examples of recursion, the process of embedding ideas within ideas that humans seem to do so effortlessly. So effortlessly and so skilfully, in fact, that it's beginning to look like the one true dividing line between animals and humans that may hold up to close scrutiny.

That's the hope of Michael Corballis, professor emeritus of psychology at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. His new book, The Recursive Mind: The origins of human language, thought, and civilization, is a fascinating and well-grounded exposition of the nature and power of recursion.
