"In Friday's Footprint, Professor Brothers offers a breathtaking, sweeping account of how human brain structure and function, from the single neuron to mind and conscious awareness, have come to be shaped through the course of primate social evolution. She challenges us with the startling view that all we are, think, or feel, bears the indelible stamp of our long history as intensely social creatures. While we have long suspected that the evolution of society served as a springboard for the development of refined intellect, a concept of self, and the capacity for deception, Friday'sFootprint now firmly anchors these suspicions to a solid neuroscience foundation. Armed with first-hand experience from the research laboratory and the clinic, and argued with much intellectual verve and wit, Brothers' case for the evolution of a social brain' is airtight."--H. Dieter Steklis, Professor of Anthropology, Rutgers UniversityRezension:
Sociologists interested in an introduction to the developing fields of neurosociology will find a real treat in this volume... At minimum, Leslie Brothers provides strong neurological data to support the idea of the self as an owner of conscious experience, as well as the idea of the social nature of the physical brain itself.
