Summary:
"Paul Thagard's Treatise on Mind and Society is a trio of books: Brain-Mind: From Neurons to Consciousness and Creativity, Mind-Society: From Brains to Social Sciences and Professions, and Natural Philosophy: From Social Brains to Knowledge, Reality, Morality, and Beauty. Mind-Society melds the neural and mental mechanisms in this book with complementary social mechanisms to explain a wide range of social phenomena. The result is an integrated account of five social sciences (economics, politics, sociology, anthropology, and history), and of five professions (medicine, law, education, business, and engineering)"-- Provided by publisher.
