Our Book Review

Emotional Amoral Egoism: A Neurophilosophical Theory of Human Nature and Its Universal Security Implications - Nayef Al-Rodhan

An extremely well researched and informative book into what constitutes not just what makes us think the way we do but also the way we act. The author uses clear and concise explanations and illustrations to explain his theories and to back up his statements. An excellent study book which you need to read in a quiet or undisturbed room to fully appreciate and understand. In certain parts the text may need reading a couple of times. Students of psychology or philosophy must read this book to help further their learning. I especially enjoyed the introduction and beginning of the book as the author uses famous philosophers to explain our behaviours and ideas with reasoned and balanced logic, he follows this by describing factors and/or influences that can have an impact on how we behave or react. The second part of the book deals in more depth of how these factors and influences affect our way of thinking and how it is difficult for humans to change our nature or beliefs and offers theories on how we can change. This is the second book that I have read by this particular author and this again did not disappoint, the area of mind and brain and its workings have been a mystery for centuries and this books goes a long way to answering or offering solutions to those questions.
