About Cognitive Politics

Most people have yet to explore the great discoveries into the human mind.  Many don’t know about the quiet revolution that has been in the works throughout the last forty years in the cognitive sciences.  Yet, some are looking for vital insights into human psychology, the workings of our brains, and the implications of embodiment for the future of society.  The following resources are meant for these seekers to help them in their personal quest for knowledge and empowerment.

We cannot overcome the great challenges of out time until we recognize our true selves and cultivate empirically responsible philosophies of human nature and the political mind.
