Social Connection Makes a Better Brain

Social Connection Makes a Better Brain | Collaboration in teaching and learning | Scoop.it
Recent trends show that people increasingly value material goods over relationships—but neuroscience and evolution say this goes against our nature.

 

Lieberman’s new book Social: Why Our Brains Are Wired to Connect hits the shelves this month. It’s a book about relationships and why relationships are a central—though increasingly absent—part of a flourishing life. Lieberman draws on psychology and neuroscience research to confirm what Aristotle asserted long ago in his Politics: “Man is by nature a social animal … Anyone who either cannot lead the common life or is so self-sufficient as not to need to, and therefore does not partake of society, is either a beast or a god.”
