Nurturing Our Humanity: How Domination and Partnership Shape Our Brains, Lives, and Future
How Domination and Partnership Shape Our Brains, Lives, and Future
Nurturing Our Humanity offers a new perspective on our personal and social options in today's world, showing how to structure our environments-from family and gender relations to politics and economics-to support our great capacities for consciousness, caring, and creativity. It examines where societies fall on the partnership-domination scale, and how this impacts equity, sustainability, peace, and how our brains develop. Combining cutting-edge findings from biological and social science, it explains regressions to strongman rule and other dangerous trends; re-examines our past (including societies that for millennia oriented toward partnership); and outlines actions to move us in this life-sustaining and enhancing direction.
