This is a compelling, meticulous discussion of 150+ situations and substances that heighten or cripple the brain. Applying these elements to three disparate cultures (Ashkenazi Jew, Confucian East Asian, and Sub-Saharan African), the author reveals how the factors critically impact cognitive development. The book provides mental health guidance to individuals, families, and policy-makers.
This startling, controversial collection of essays by pundit/provocateur Hank Pellissier promotes his hedonist-transhumanist-egalitarian vision of the future. The articles, backed by data and optimistic imagination, examine numerous bio-ethical and politically flammable topics: sexbots, in-vitro meat, Israel, parent licenses, women-only leadership, public nudity, artificial wombs and cryonics.
