Our practical purpose in establishing the Research Group is to create a fertile space for research, discussion, and exploration of the mind, from its biological roots to its cultural fruits.

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, with a goal of creating bridges connecting affective neuroscience, evolution, and philosophy of mind.

Led by Humanities, History, and Social Sciences professors Stephen Asma Rami Gabriel, the Research Groupcreates 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.
