Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In line with all the comments on a new way of interpreting nature instead of managing it, I'm cheered to report that David Brooks has done an Arianna Huffington and come to the Bright Side.

He's started a new column to explicate social neuroscience developments, in the New York Times (mainstream, anyone?), just appeared for a solid hour on Charlie Rose to tout his new book and new outlook about the need for this here new neuroscience of emotion.

David has discovered "Descartes' Error" finally (and if you haven't, well, get to it). That would be the idea that emotions make decisions, and language rationalizes them. David's positively evangelical about it, and it makes me feel good, because it's been my religion for about ten years now.

Align culture with our nature. Ot else!
