in thread Who makes your decisions?

The talk is completely about neuroscience and ignores psychology. Of course, this is an neuroscience vs psychology old debate. Ironically, he quotes Jung, but completely ignores his psychology. If only that Jung specifically questions the idea of the psyche being in the brain. The speaker uses anecdotal evidence to prove his point. I stopped listening at about 16 minutes where he starting getting into psychology and reveal his personal, (what some would call) religious views. Regardless, he is a good speaker.

In a sense, this poll, being so inspired, is based on this question of neuroscience vs psychology.

    The speaker used well studied cases that are counterexamples to a widely believed hypothesis.

    I'd say the implicit premise of this talk (which is very well done by the way) is that neuroscience is psychology.

      The debate is over a century old. Other than a few more recent anecdotes, he added nothing new.
