Hence, our new book: Between I and We – Unifying Psychology and Sociology Along the Amygdala-Prefrontal Cortex Continuum, enlists centuries of human exploration and experience, to provide the first disciplined attempt to bring together humanity’s two ancient-yet-ever-renewing efforts at self-understanding. We do this by mapping a common cognitive and behavioral path that merges what we know about the conscious and unconscious, the rational and irrational, the pragmatic and the incorporeal – at both the individual and the group levels – along the unifying continuum of the Amygdala-Prefrontal Cortex spectrum. This is a continuum that describes the relative, proportional, inter-relations between the instinctive-reactive (amygdala) and the contemplative-responsive (prefrontal cortex), the fast and the slow, the coarse and the nuanced…To read the full article, click here” – Featured online by The Safe Communities Institute (SCI) at the University of Southern California Price School of Public Policy, https://sci.usc.edu/
