Barbaric Rage & Love

I have rather enjoyed Barbaric Rage & Love's motivations for blogging about neuroscience, evolutionary biology, art, and culture.

Barbaric Rage & Love is meant to ask questions, raise issues, consider possibilities. I don't have any answers. I'm searching too. This is all so new. Universal Darwinism, evolutionary biology, evolutionary psychology, consciousness studies, neurolaw, functional magnetic resonance imagery, genomics, memetics -- most of these and more only started in the last quarter of the twentieth century, or even more recently.

Obvious I don't agree with the triumphalism - but I must also say that I really admire the enthusiasm, curiosity, and boldness. Blogging as a reflection of the "public self" can offer a surprising intimacy for total strangers.
