Blinded by Science : The Social Implications of Epigenetics and Neuroscience - Critical (Hardcover)
About this item
There’s no hotter area of science, at least as far as the general media and laypeople are concerned, than neuroscience—every day we hear of dramatic, surprising discoveries that seem to have the potential to utterly change our understanding of how the mind works. This book offers the first thorough review of such claims and the new biological science behind them. It examines the actual and potential applications of neuroscience within social policy and the impact of neuroscientific discoveries on long-standing moral debates and professional practices throughout social work, mental health practice, and criminal justice.
