The Research Group in Mind, Science and Culture
The Research Group in Mind, Science and Culture takes a holistic approach to the study of the human mind. Our goal is to create bridges connecting affective neuroscience, evolution and philosophy of mind.
Our research emphasizes the continuity across mammal brains by focusing on the integral role of emotion in social interaction and cognition. We view the mind and brain as highly flexible epigenetic products of nature and culture, rather than a computational machine.
The Research Group creates a space for research, discussion and exploration of the mind. The Group emphasizes a cross-disciplinary dialogue between psychology, philosophy, the biological sciences, history and the humanities as a means of connecting the many levels of the human mind in this increasingly synergistic field of knowledge.
