We're all hypocrites. Why? Hypocrisy is the usual nation of the human mind.
Robert Kurzban indicates us that the main to realizing our behavioral inconsistencies lies in realizing the mind's layout. The human brain includes many really good devices designed through the method of evolution by means of typical choice. whereas those modules occasionally interact seamlessly, they do not regularly, leading to impossibly contradictory ideals, vacillations among persistence and impulsiveness, violations of our meant ethical ideas, and overinflated perspectives of ourselves.
This modular, evolutionary mental view of the brain undermines deeply held intuitions approximately ourselves, in addition to a variety of clinical theories that require a "self" with constant ideals and personal tastes. Modularity means that there isn't any "I." in its place, each one people is a contentious "we"--a number of discrete yet interacting structures whose consistent conflicts form our interactions with each other and our adventure of the world.
In transparent language, filled with wit and wealthy in examples, Kurzban explains the roots and implications of our inconsistent minds, and why it really is completely typical to think that everybody else is a hypocrite.
