Us and them : understanding your tribal mind

Summary:
"In this book, David Berreby shows how science tackles questions of group identity.

Drawing on new findings from anthropology to neuroscience, he argues that this "tribal" sense is a part of human nature, expressing itself in every aspect of life."

"We can't live without our tribal sense. It tells us who we are and how we should behave. It frees us from the narrow confines of the self, linking us to others and the past and the future.

Some condemn this instinct, as if it were only a source of evil. Others celebrate it, as if loyalty and faith were never misused.

David Berreby describes a third alternative: how we can accept and understand our inescapable tribal mind."--Jacket.  Read more...

Excellent popular discussion of current social psychology

by vleighton (WorldCat user published 2011-12-31) Excellent Permalink

As I said in my Amazon review, "Us and Them" by David Berreby explores the human faculty for seeing other people as members of groups with group characteristics, or as Berreby calls them, Human Kinds. The book examines classic results of social psychology, such...
