Literatur
 
Mark Swysen untersucht, wie sich angeborene biologische und psychologische Mechanismen mit Verstand und Emotionen bei der Steuerung des menschlichen Verhaltens gegenseitig beeinflussen. Er setzt dieses Thema philosophisch um, indem er die Denkmuster des menschlichen Gehirns und die daraus resultierenden soziologischen Dynamiken des menschlichen Zusammenlebens hinterfragt.
