The physiology of truth : neuroscience and human knowledge by Jean-Pierre Changeux( Book )

"Drawing on provocative new findings about the psychophysiology of perception and judgment in both human and nonhuman primates, and also on the cultural history of science, Jean-Pierre Changeux makes a powerful case for the reality of scientific progress and argues that it forms the basis for a coherent and universal theory of human rights. On this view, belief in objective knowledge is not a mere ideological slogan or a naive confusion; it is a characteristic feature of human cognition throughout evolution, and the scientific method is its most sophisticated embodiment. Seeking to reconcile science and humanism. Changeux holds that the capacity to recognize truths that are independent of subjective personal experience constitutes the foundation of a human civil society."--Jacket
Origins of the human brain by Fondation Fyssen( Book )

23 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout history, humans have been fascinated by their origins. The evolutionary development of the human brain is of particular interest as human intellectual, emotional, and cultural capacities are considered to be unique among animals. This book brings together a group of eminent scientists from the fields of anthropology, psychology, neuroscience, and evolutionary biology. Their views provide a starting point for a debate based on the most recent scientific data relating to the evolutionary origins of the human brain. The sciences of the past (palaeontology, archaeology) are joined with the sciences of the present and future (molecular neurobiology, population genetics) to produce a lively, informative, and valuable synthesis

Les mathématiques et la biologie se trouvent aux deux extrémités du spectre de la science. D'un côté la rigueur logique, débarrassée de toute contingence matérielle, de l'autre une science d'observation, profondément tributaire de savoir-faire techniques et de concepts moraux. Ce livre d'entretiens tente de créer une passerelle entre ces disciplines que tout éloigne. Les deux auteurs, tous deux académiciens et professeurs au Collège de France, s'interrogent sur la nature de la pensée, l'existence des objets mathématiques ou le rapport entre le cerveau et les machines
