Beschreibung:

A compelling argument for a fundamental redirection of thought away from a reductionist, deterministic approach to one viewing human actions as involving conscious choices and purposeful activities. In linking the developments in neuroscience to the social sciences, White strikes at the essence of what those sciences are and should be.
The Empty Organism; The Organism; The End of the Empty Organism - The Coming of Classical Social Science; The Organism in the Evolutionary Process - The Implications for the Philosophy of Social Science; Organic Selection, Human Evolutions and Human History; Self Direction and Political Action - Conscious Purpose, Emic Analysis, and Ongoing Political Biography; The Restoration of Politics as the Master Art.
In a fundamental challenge to the positions widespread among social scientists, White distances himself from the reductionist models of the human brain. He asserts, basing his thought on the authoritative findings of modern neuroscientists, the causal potency of human self-awareness.
