I attended Modena's philosophy festival in Italy in 2008 where I listened to the author of this book illustrate and demonstrate the discovery of mirror neurons (i neuroni a specchio). I was thrilled to have been at such a cutting edge talk about the dilemma that has dogged the patriarchal doctrines of my philosophical studies, How the heck do we pass (or in essence, justify the passage of) an immaterial entity (thought, idea)into action. How does the immaterial become material? How is it that it does not happen sometimes, gets rejected? Sure, in real life we just do it and leave the theorizing to the thinkers, that is until we do something we wish we had not done and wonder why or how it occurred. The topic of this book breaks the hegemony of the Kantian 'free' person model and leaves us free to contemplate a totally different matrix for human morality in care- ethics (Michael Slote, Virginia Held's ethics of care)which postulates the fundamental importance of sharing.
