Product Description


"In this scintillating collection of essays, experts drawn from five different countries and nine different academic fields turn their sights and their insights on one of the hottest topics in neuroscience today--emotional intelligence. This is no esoteric tome for dusty scholars: its topic relates and is here painstakingly related to such timeless concerns as male/female difference, the interconnections of biology and gender, the concepts of genius and the elite brain, and the threat to society--and the promise--posed by science. A must-read for anyone interested in people."--Janet Kourany, Fellow, John J. Reilly Center for Science, Technology, and Values, University of Notre Dame

"Karafyllis and Ulshofer have assembled here an international group of experts who grapple with a set of topics not typically brought together for discussion: cognitive and affective neuroscience, gender, and emotional intelligence. They succeed in distinguishing between 'popular' approaches versus programmatic research at the intersection of these broad areas and, in doing so provoke the reader to consider social contexts that determine the research questions receiving serious attention and those that do not. By asking questions about gender differences in brain function and emotional processes, "Sexualized Brains" raises many issues of concern to scholars considering the cultural constraints impinging on scientific progress."--Peter Salovey, Chris Argyris Professor of Psychology, Yale University
