On the Seductive Appeal of Mindless Neuroscience

Massimo and Julia talk with psychiatrist Sally Satel and professor of psychology Scott O. Lilienfeld about neural correlates, neurological basis of love, morality, addiction, technological advancements within neuroscience, etc. Published on Rationally Speaking, November 10, 2013.

It seems like a week can't go by without a news story about how neuroscience has discovered the neurological basis of love, morality, addiction, you name it. Yet how much explanatory power does neuroscience really have—and are we putting too much trust in its findings? On this episode of Rationally Speaking, Massimo and Julia explore these questions with psychiatrist Sally Satel and professor of psychology Scott O. Lilienfeld, the authors of "Brainwashed: The Seductive Appeal of Mindless Neuroscience."

Scott's pick: "The Invisible Gorilla: And Other Ways Our Intuitions Deceive Us"

Sally's pick: "Strangers to Ourselves: Discovering the Adaptive Unconscious"
